    Winemaker's Notes:

    Enticing aromas that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach pit, white pear, flowers, and orange citrus fruit. On the palate, it has beautiful structure and acidity similar to Sauvignon Blanc along with enticing fruit flavors that keep you coming back for another sip and plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors.

    Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry, this wine has to be tasted to be believed. Best enjoyed in its youth either by itself, or as a wonderful partner with smoked meats, mild to medium-strong cheeses, and seafood (especially crab).

    "Susana Balbo consistently delivers refined, clean Torrontes like this 2007, a white filled with ripe melon and honey scents. The deep flavors surround sweet peach with spice in a creamy texture. The finish is refreshing."

    90 Points

    "The 2007 Torrontes is about as good as teh varietal gets. Super fragrant, smelling of a spring flower garden, honey, and exotic spices from the nose one expects to be sweet. On the palate, however, it is dry with a creamy texture, intense flavors, excellent acidity, and a lengthy finish. It is an ideal alternative for rich courses normally calling for Chardonnay. All Crios wines are outstanding values."

    Definately a complex wine. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes to balance out a bit. It has an intricate floral scent with a fruity taste typical of young white wines. Dynamic and spicy on the front; crisp and somewhat acidic on the back. Reasonably affordable for its amazing quality. I enjoyed it and will consider buying it again.

    I really enjoyed this wine and those who tried it at a recent party I had liked it as well. If you like Sauvignon Blanc, give it a try.

    Nothing really special. I found it to be a bit flat. Perhaps I got a bad bottle. Drinkable, but there are better whites out there.

    It is complex and very different. Its high in acid and my bottle at least was watery with minimal flavor. If you want something thats confused what it wants to be try this. It just did not make me care enough to keep trying.
