100% Torrontés from Argentina. SRP of $11, but available for around $8.
Sample received courtesy Famiglia Meschini for review purposes.
The bottle doesn’t have any information on the wine so I asked Teresa Meschini to describe it. Here’s what she said:
“It tickles your tongue. That’s seriously the best way to describe it. Everyone who tries the Torrontés asks what it is and where they can get it. It’s love at first bubble with enticing aromas of peach, flowers & apricot. Lively bubbles in the front which mellow down in the mid palate. Pairings: You can enjoy Torrontés alone, but also marries well with spicy food such as Thai.
The 2010 Famiglia Meschini Sparkling Torrontés begins with subdued aromas of tropical fruit. This is a sweet wine that tastes of melon, guava, lemon, and pear but the sparkling nature helps offset some of the sweetness. Fairly simple but very fresh and refreshing with a good crisp finish. This is not a complex wine, but offers a nice change up for summer. This one was not as good on day 2 so grab a couple friends and polish it off on the patio.
