Back in Argentina

*Disclaimer; I received this wine as a sample from Bin Ends Wine in order to participate in a Twitter Taste Live.

I think after this bottle I still have 5 more Argentinian wines to tell you about from the Wines of Argentina Twitter Taste Live series.  I participated in every Argentina Twitter Taste Live so I got to taste through quite a range of wines! And since we are only two people, we weren’t really opening up any other bottles during that time as we couldn’t drink them fast enough!  One of my favorite Torrontes was this 2008 Bodegas Etchart Ayres Torrontes Reserve.  It had a real cork closure, clocked in at 14% alcohol by volume, and I have no idea what it retails for.

My first note for this bottles says: Wow, what a nose! The nose on the wine was great. It had florals, perfume, orange blossom, jasmine, honeysuckle, white pepper, white flowers, pear, tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit, and something sweet lurking on the nose that I almost want to call marshmallow.  In the mouth I got citrus, grapefruit, meyer lemon, florals, tangerines, clementines, soft pear, tropical notes lurking behind, and an overall delicate citrus sensation. The wine had racy acidity and we really enjoyed it.
