From the bottle:
“Trivento takes its name from three winds: Polar, Zonda and Sudestada. The God of the Winds, EOLO, capriciously summons the winds that make Mendoza such a distinctive winegrowing region. A bright, steely-hued green whose floral essence issues aromas of roses and violets interlaced with citric notes. Trivento Reserve Torrontés delicate tropical fruits tread crisply on the palate before giving way to a fresh finish.
It’s been awhile since we’ve featured a wine made from Torrontés here at The Reverse Wine Snob. Much like our Rosé feature last Monday and our Albarino feature shortly before that, Torrontés is an under-appreciated variety that is perfect for summer.
The 2012 Trivento Reserve Torrontés begins with a very aromatic nose of apple, pear, a little pineapple and mango plus lots of honeysuckle and other floral notes. Tasting reveals tons of pear, peach, tropical fruit and zesty citrus notes. You’ll also find a nice lively mouthfeel and a bright, crisp acidity in this refreshing wine. It ends with lots of lingering tropical fruit.
