Another Winner

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample in order to participate in a Taste Live Event.

Here’s a Torrontes that meets all the characteristics I want when I have a bottle of it. Lovely nose, good acidity, great citrus flavors, and more. And a decent price point. Can’t beat that. The 2009 Crios Torrontes was probably my favorite wine from this tasting. My mom even loved it and kept asking for more and she’s not a wine drinker at all. The wine clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume, had a screw cap closure and retails for around $13.

On the nose I got lots of lemon. In fact, I wrote in my notes “lemon lemon lemon.” I also got honeysuckle, honey, and grapefruit. In the mouth I found lots of grapefruit, lemon, orange blossom, orange rind, and white pepper. The wine had some heft on the palate giving it good structure and body.
