Argentinan Pinot Gris

The back label reads “A harsh and extreme climate at the foot of the impressive Cordillera Mountains, a high altitude and rocky volcanic ground (black rocks), this is our terrior. The wines that come from this region are full-bodied yet smooth, intense and varied; typical considering their grape variety. They are very pleasurable wines.”

This is 100% pinot gris, the first of its kind to be planted in Argentina. It ripened early and picked later than usual. It smells of citrus and berries. I love the fresh taste and crisp finish. And don’t even get me started on the color!!! SO PRETTY.

Argentinian Torrentos

This is a beautiful, intense yellow-white wine. It is filled with heavy floral flavors and bright citrus aromas. The taste is dry, unoaked, and oh-so yummy. It is on the heavier bodied side with a long-lasting finish. It comes from Mendoza, Argentina, known for high temps during the day and very low at night, which retains acidity within the wine.

This was my first Torrentos and most certainly won’t be my last, XOXO!

As you can tell by the photo above, I have certainly been enjoying this warm weather :).

Last night I tried another white that matched perfectly with the sunshine. The back label describes this wine as having “bright aromas of fresh pink grapefruit that mingle with floral notes” and I fully agree. It has a nice amount of mineral balance and the finish is so yummy that you just have to try it for yourself!

Until next wine, XOXO.
