This is 85% Torrontes and 15% Riesling.  Light silvery green gold in color.  The nose is pronounced and very nice.  Grapefruit and Mandarin oranges.  Slightly viscous.  Good acidity.  Oranges and minerals on the palate.  Nice finish if a bit thin.  This wine is delicious on its own and will work well with lighter foods.  It is relatively inexpensive and will be great for summer parties.

Torrontes is the signature white grape of Argentina.  This is 100%.  Light silvery gold in color.  The nose has some grapefruit and a steely quality to it.  Better on the palate with flavors of quince and grape fruits.  Light bodied.  Slightly oily texture.  Good acidity.  Long finish.  This is a friendly easy going wine that sips well on its own and will pair nicely with lighter foods.  It is relatively inexpensive and a good value.
