Sharp bitterness, chard-style body, not my favourite. Don't hate it.

Pineapple, stones, coconut, crisp and refreshing, that last vineyard in the world with the varietal Torbato.

My first Torbato. Mineral driven, high acidity with citrus notes. Could only be costal with the salinity. Lovely wine with rare tuna, served with mango and avocado. Really good value if you are open to the unfamiliar.

Possibly the only Torbato you'll find stateside, the Terre Bianche vineyard delivers a complex, mineral driven, dry wine which seems to boast a thousand years of seabed sediment in each sip and slurp! A bit of lemon peel rinds on the nose and dried citrus notes on the long, pleasing finish. For fans of wines with blazing acid and layers of minerality, this is the wine for you! $19

My first torbato and loved it. Great mineral and lime zest. Has a wonderful richness on the palate too. The color was an added bonus. Fun, fun wine.
