We are never shy about our firm belief that this is, quite simply, the best Torrontés in Argentina; or at least the best unoaked example. It has all the floral subtlety and delicate exotic nuance that this grape is so cherished for but, unlike a lot of other examples, many from Salta Province in the far north, this one is more subtly nuanced than in your face! Also, unlike many others, this one is really lean and lively on the palate, ultra zesty and fresh. In fact, texture wise, it feels more like a very good Sauvignon Blanc, such is the acid balance and structure in relation to the lovely ripeness of fruit. Stunning.

With an Asian-style chicken stir-fry full of crunchy vegetables, ginger and fresh chili, an aromatic and refreshing Torrontes from Argentina would be a perfect match. This fabulous Torrontes is ultra-zesty and fresh. In fact, texture wise, it feels more like a very good Sauvignon Blanc, such is the acid balance and structure in relation to the lovely ripeness of fruit.
