Critical Acclaim

ST 90

Pale, bright straw-yellow. Pure, floral aromas of citrus blossom, licorice and mint. Juicy, intensely flavored and fresh, with flavors similar to the aromas.

The 2009 Torrontes remains one of Argentina’s benchmarks for this variety. Sourced from 31-year-old vines in Cafayate (where the finest Torrontes grows), it displays a fragrant bouquet of spring flowers, honey, and tropical aromas. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate, it has ample fruit backed by vibrant acidity leading to a lengthy finish. Drink it over the next 2 years.
