Auka La Consulta Mendoza Torrontes 2009

Other White from Argentina
Review Date : 09-May-2011
Torrontes is the indigenous specialty white varietal of Argentina. Fruit from the Chilecito Valley from 15 y.o. vines. Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, this has a tight, but attractively expressed bouquet of lifted florals and muscat-like grapey aromatics, with fresh herb nuances and some raisiny notes. Dry on palate, this has good depth and intensity of grapey, floral flavours with a soft, rounded, oily-textured mouthfeel. The acidity is sufficient for freshness and liveliness and the wine offers good length and nuance, finishing cleanly and crisply. Match with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine over the next 2 years. 13.5% alc. 17.0-/20 May 2011 RRP $24.95
