I don't often write "orange juice" as a note, but that's what I get here. Bright and expressive. We offer this wine at only $8. So yeah, this is among the best white wine deals in the world (Suckling 90, Parker 89). Well done, Recuerdo.

Great taste, simplistic but delicious. Warm notes citrus, pomelo and grapefruit

This Argentine white grape is my new obsession. So much musky goodness in the nose accompanied by notes of beeswax, hawthorn (a subtle white flower that's addictive), and peach. Lime on the palate with elegant structure and crisp finish. I am giving this an 8.5 only bc there are nicer ones from Salta but where else can you find a beautiful wine like this for (gasp) under ten bucks?!
