About Torrontes Wines from Argentina

July 25, 2011

Philippines Wine Shop Clark Wine Center is pleased to share with you articles, news and information about wine, wine events, wine tasting and other topics related to wine and the appreciation of wine.

Torrontes is only produced in Argentina and has a unique flavor.

The Torrontes grown in the Cafayate Valley (Salta) is the most prestigious in the country. Due to its special microclimate, Cafayate has achieved outstanding vineyard development, producing fruity, tasty wines that linger in the mouth.

There are different types of Torrontes: Award-winning Torrontes Riojano (from the province of La Rioja), better suited for the production of fine wines, which are both very fruity and dry, Torrontes Mendocino (from the province of Mendoza) and Torrontes Sanjuanino (from the province of San Juan), which are suitable for fresh fruit consumption.

What to look for in Torrontés

Torrontés is a light yellow wine that occasionally has golden and green hues. Its aroma is reminiscent of roses, jasmine, and geraniums. In the mouth it is pure fruit salad, sometimes with touches of honey or oregano. Its aromas suggest a sweet wine but its taste reveals a refreshing acidity.

What to pair with Torrontés

Torrontés is perfect as a refreshing start to a meal or paired with delicate flavours such as fish and shellfish. Spicy and aromatic Indian, Chinese and Thai cuisine also go very well with this variety.
