Torrontes Riesling blend. Highly aromatic with ginger, tropical fruits, citrus, orange blossom. Moderate acid, refreshing, simple with hint of minerals finish.

Rare Riesling blend from Argentina. Pretty noticeable actually. Sort of a nice inbetween for people who like sauv blanc and something less acidic.

Tropical fruit, green apples, light, crisp with a slightly acidic finish. Some sweetness. Overall good soft fragrant white.

Wonderful porch wine! Great on a hot afternoon/evening... the Riesling really adds some pizzaz to the Torrontes.
