From the bottle:
“This clean, young wine comes from Mendoza, Argentina, where the juicy white grape Torrontés has found its home! This is a light/medium bodied wine with intense floral aromas & fresh herbal notes. As if walking through a field of wildflowers, you stop and pick a rose, the enticing aroma mixes with the broken stem’s grassiness; a true delight! Starbright with lemon, lychee, & a hint of cashew nuts, pair with Asian influenced salad or grilled shrimp!
I’m quickly becoming a big fan of Torrontés. This is really just a delicious grape that rarely sees any oak in the winemaking process and as such the delicious fruit is allowed to shine. Some might find these wines a bit on the simple side, but the good ones are always refreshing and easy to drink. Today’s is just such an example.
The 2011 Grazioso Organic Torrontés begins with really sweet aromas of melon, lemon, and peach along with some floral notes. The wine tastes light, crisp and fresh with lemon, peach, and pineapple flavors. This light-bodied wine even shows a little spice and has a nice finish. Overall a good example of a light and refreshing Torrontés, and organic to boot!
