This nice little Torrontés is made by Piattelli vineyards and is just one of many wines made with this spectacular varietal that I will review over the next few months. I love Torrontés for it's freshness and it's stunning aromatics, which I think totally eclipse the likes of other white grape varietals in the same price categories. It's like Sauvignon Blanc, but is always a bit more tropical and less acidic. Oh....it smoke Pinot Grigio so I won't even make the comparison.
On the nose this wine displays a beautiful and tropical fruit aroma profile consisting of lychee nut, blueberry guts, star acacia, orange blossom, and white chocolate.
On the palate the wine is crisp and refreshing and shows flavors of kumquat, meyer lemon, edible flowers, and mineral. The acidity is nice and zesty and the wine is as refreshing as could possibly be expected. It's quite honestly a wine that I'll be drinking throughout the hot summer here in the Arizona desert. 90 points
