Very sweet. All in the altitude of Salta. Ok for $8 on a hot beach day.

Lots of floral character, crisp, bright citrus flavors. Mellows after opening. Excellent with grilled fish tacos!

Not sure what to think of this, but I really don't know much about Torrontes. It's super sweet with a cloying finish. :-/

Highly recommend it! Dry, with elements of old yellow bit bitter apple and pear skin, fennel, plantain. A masculine Torrontes for once. Bravo, Alamos! Please try this with grilled seafood or especially Branzino.
