La Consulta ‘Reserva’ Cafayate Salta Torrontes 2010

Other White from Argentina
Review Date : 15-Sep-2011
100% Torrontes from Cafayate, Salta, stainless-steel fermented to 13.3% alc. and <4g/L rs, 20% aged 3 months in acacia barrels. Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green hues. This has a very fine, tightly bound, but intense and piercing nose of musky florals, grapes and herbs, with a pure, steeliness. Dry to taste, the intense, penetrating flavours of florals, musk and perfume are concentrated, forming a dense core. The palate has rounded textures and weight, but shows good tension and freshness from the balancing acidity, which carries through to a sustained finish with attractive muscat-like and herbal nuances. Serve with lightly spiced Asian and Mediterranean seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2-3+ years. 18.0/20 Sep 2011 RRP $22.00
