"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 mediumstrong cheeses, and seafood (especially crab!)."

"The 2012 Crios Torrontes comes from Cafayate in Salta, Altamira and La Rioja from 33yearold vines. It has much more presence and vivacity than the Chardonnay, with scents of lime, peach and melon that are welldefined. The palate is wellbalanced with a prickle of white pepper on the entry. It displays moderate length in the mouth, while the finish is crisp and taut. with notes of pear, bruised apple and dried orange peel. This is worth seeking out for the price."
