Description | Details | Rating

Enticing aromas that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach pit, flowers, and orange citrus fruit. On the palate, it has mouthwatering acidity that keeps 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. Keep one in the fridge at all times!

Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Críos Torrontés is a 50/50 blend of juice from Cafayate in Salta and Altamira in Valle de Uco fermented in their respective regions and then assembled in her winery in Mendoza. It's the prototype of fresh Torrontés with tension and good acidity, without overwhelming aromas, designed for the dinner table. 2016 was an interesting harvest in Cafayate, as the frost reduced yields by 50%, and in Altamira they also got lower than normal yields. The wine has great freshness and a subtle nose. Crisp and aromatic without overwhelming your senses and with good weight of fruit. This time lower yields have resulted in higher quality. Rating: 90+"
