About This Wine

It is produced only in Argentina.

It has an incomparable flavor. It is found across all the winemaking regions of the country, from Salta to Río Negro, and has become an icon among Argentine white wines. It is Torrontes.

The emergence of Torrontes is the result of the genetic crossing of two varieties brought to Argentina in colonial times. The so-called “Uva Negra” and Muscat of Alexandria (or “Uva de Italia”) are the ancestors of the variety, which initially was planted among other varieties. Without knowing it, early winemakers were crafting unique “field blends” that included Torrontes.

But today, Torrontes not only has been identified, it has emerged as Argentina’s star white variety. Miguel Flores makes an outstanding rendition that’s medium-bodied and viscous, finishing with a slight sweetness. It would be perfect as a refreshing start to a meal, or paired with delicate flavors such as those found in fish and shellfish.

    I don’t know a lot about wine. I know I mostly prefer roséwhite. I thought it was delicious.
