A nose of apple and sweet white peach is inviting. This is a Torrontés that was fermented in contact with its skin and was bottled unfiltered. The bright palate delivers lime, pear, peach and honeydew. Good acidity makes the wine approachable. It finishes with citrus notes and is slightly warm. Jesica Vargas

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.

Discover New Regions for Torrontés

The Mendoza Wine Region is by far the most important in all of Argentina as it is responsible for approximately 80% of the country’s total wine production. The Malbec varietal is almost synonymous with Mendoza as it accounts for the majority of the region’s plantings, but Cabernet Sauvignon, Torrontés and Chardonnay are also heavily produced. The combination of the desert-like conditions and high-altitude vineyards aid in producing wines with robust concentration with plenty of supporting acidity. The Malbecs from the region are known for producing wines with dense boysenberry, plum and blackberry flavors and often show layers of coffee and bitter chocolate due to oak aging. Be sure to look through our Mendoza Buying Guide to find the top cellar selections as well as the best buys from this region.
