2015 Bodegas Colomé Torrontes Valle Calchaquí Salta
Magnificent fruity and floral bouquet, redolent of peach, elderfolwer, lilies and citrus. On the mouth, it has a lovely creamy texture supported by a sharp, refreshing acidity and gorgeous ripe tropical fruits. Exquisite, a tremendous example of how Torrontés can really hit the heights.
Very pale, bright color. Aromas of peach, mirabelle, flowers and wild herbs. Juicy, savory, minty wine with lovely saline lift and intensity to its citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Brisk acidity draws out the tactile, bright finish. (ST)
Wine & Spirits
This comes from the heights of Colomé, one of the highest points in the already very high region of Salta, in the north of Argentina. Dry and austere at first, with air it slowly reveals a core of ripe white fruit flavors and intense spice. Ready to drink with white sausages, this is one of the best values you can find in Torrontés.
Powdery white-fruit aromas blend with notes of vanilla, lees and briny saline water. This feels fresh and lightly citrusy. Powdery, yeasty melon and tropical fruit flavors finish with notes of lychee and citrus pith. (MS)
Offers minerally notes to the green apple and ripe lime flavors, with plenty of floral accents. White pepper details show on the well-structured finish. Drink now. (KM)
From biodynamically farmed Torrontes, this wine is produced from some of the highest elevation vines in production anywhere in the world, at more than 7,000 feet above sea level! Very floral aromas with juicy yellow plums and white peaches lead to a lovely, slightly spicy and floral, yet refreshing palate. Another great effort from one of our favorite Argentinian wineries.
