Meet Torrontés

Around the world, there are thousands of grapes varietals to make wine. And just as in the culinary world, each country has its typical grapes, according to its climate and soil ... you got it? Por eso en Italia no hay plátano, ni en Miami hacemos Malbec.

Let's travel to Argentina ... I want to introduce you to Torrontés. A white wine, pale-lemon green in color, with medium acidity and medium alcohol, sweet on the nose but medium dry in taste. But the beauty of Torrontés grape is that produces one of the most aromatic wines in the world. Like Riesling, Moscato and Sauvignon Blanc.

There are three types of Torrontés grapes that are cultivated in different areas of Argentina. But in Cafayate, in the elevated region of Salta, is where the most expressive wines of this variety come from. Look closely at the label, if you want the full experience.

Wine aromas and flavors are “born” from the mother nature and from the production style of each winemaker. If you taste this wine with your eyes closed, Torrontés will lead you to feel lemon, peach, honey, pear and if you get a hint of flowers you are not dreaming, it will make you feel the aroma of roses and geraniums.

Enjoy it chill, as an appetizer or with Asian food. It “marry well” with feta and pecorino cheese, with vegetables or with a recipe with a lot of cilantro, cumin, mint or with spicy sauce.

The best thing is that they are super affordable, you will find them between $8- $18. They meant to drink young and they do not age in the bottle.

Fill your glass with something different each time.

Salud! Torrontés ... Doesn’t Bite!
