First up: our only white of the night! I would best describe this wine as a zippy-lounge-chair-patio wine. We ALL loved it! I'd never had the Torrontes grape before. In fact, I'd never even heard of it! And when I told the girl at the wine store that I needed a white from South America, this is what she offered me. What a beautiful wine for $16! Nice aromas of peaches, white blossom and lime peel, and tangy tastes of peaches, pineapples, citrus, and other tropical fruits in my mouth. As the night progressed, (i.e. 2 1/2 hours later) the citrus flavours really rounded out leaving me with much less sharpness. Either way, poured right out of the bottle chilled, or even a little warmer to cut into that sharpness, this was a fantastic wine! Tasted great with the spicy spinach dip that Daniel brought as well as the jalapeno cheese served by D'arci.
