2011 Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes

SKU #1081154 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2011 Torrontes offers up enticing aromas of peach, melon, floral, and tropical fruit. Medium-bodied, dry, savory, and nicely proportioned, this lengthy effort will deliver plenty of enjoyment over the next 1-2 years.  (12/ 2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale yellow. Sexy, slightly exotic aromas of wild herbs, flowers, licorice, mint and spices. Juicy, saline and dry, with a subtly tactile mouth feel to the flavors of lemon verbena, lavender and botanical herbs. There's an enticing dusty impression of soil here but plenty of sweet citrus fruits too. Savory and serious but there's nothing austere about it. An outstanding example of Argentina's distinctive torrontes, which makes a perfect aperitif.  (1/ 2012)

K&L Notes

This white offers aromas that are strikingly similar to Viognier, with hints of peach pit, white pear, flowers and orange. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and acidity with enticing fruit flavors that keep you coming back for another sip. A wonderful partner smoked meats and fish, crab, and cheese!

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
