This sharply focused Torrontés offers enticing floral lift and nuances of lychee, limestone, menthol and thyme. Its complex, expressive flavors of lemon, flowers and herbs are tactile and penetrating, and it finishes with gripping salty minerality. I could gulp this all through a summer’s day. $15.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, June 2019)
