Pisano

Río de Los Pájaros Reserve Progreso Torrontés 2020

Star bright yellow. Enticing nose of citrus rind and waxy marzipan. Zingy firm acidity from entry to finish wrapped in medium full body and layers of lemon, lemon rind, lemongrass, and new white flowers. That traditional “pop” of lemon in the finish tells me that the 2020 vintage is back from the watery depths that 2019 wrought. Seafood (white flesh fish especially), salads, poached chicken, soft cheeses, or even light cream sauces will shine in combination. It would make a refreshing sipper on a moderately arm day as well. Drink now through 2022. — a month ago
