La Consulta ‘Reserva’ La Rioja Torrontes 2012

Other White from Argentina
Review Date : 10-Jul-2014
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues, pale on rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with penetrating aromas of exotic florals, musk and herbs in an integrated amalgam. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, an up-front, rich and concentrated core of musk, exotic florals and lifted herbs features on the palate. This has a smooth, near unctuous texture and soft acidity enhancing the rounded mouthfeel. There is plenty of alcohol body and power providing positive drive, with well-managed phenolics carrying the wine to a long, sustained, oily finish. This is a rich, smooth-textured and near unctuous Torrontes with good power and exotic fruit aromatics and flavours. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit from La Rioja, cool-fermented in stainless-steel and concrete vat to 13.3% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Jul 2014 RRP $21.00
