Grande Caballeros Torrontes Mendoza Argentina 2017

Since the Mendoza region has been exporting tons of high-quality Malbec in recent years, it’s easy to understand why other varietals are not getting the same attention. Well, that needs to change. In addition to Malbec, they’re also doing incredible things with a very characteristic Spanish varietal called Torrontes.

The sparkling extremely pale yellow color is your first clue that the wine is young and will be very light-bodied. One sniff will tell you that it has a character very different from a typical Pinot Grigio. White flowers, minerality, and lots of floral aromas rise up from the glass…almost like a Viognier, which has unmistakable floral scents. There’s also some grapefruit and pineapple, which will remind you of a Sauvignon Blanc.

I’ve said in previous podcasts and blogs that sometimes you smell a wine and you taste exactly what you smell, but other times there are different flavors than the aromas. In this case, the aromas pay off exactly on the palate. The acidity is refreshing, and all the flavor and aromatic components are well balanced.
