2013 Bodegas Colomé Torrontes Valle Calchaquí Salta
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Very pale bright yellow. Pure, delicate, high-pitched perfume of rose petal and dusty brown spices. Brisk, tactile and quite dry but with an essentially supple texture--even a slightly glyceral character--to the flavors of grapefruit pith, lemon, flowers, spices and salty minerality. This serious yet seductive example of Torrontes finishes with sneaky dusty persistence.
Produced 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 leads to a lovely, slightly spicy and floral, yet refreshing palate. Another great effort from one of our favorite Argentine wineries.
