One of the best torrontés (torrontéses? torronti?) I’ve ever had, Acordeón’s torrontés is not just a lovely wine, it’s an amazing bargain, too. The peach and apricot character here is hefty, giving this wine a moderate to big body that offers astounding gravitas.
Some mineral notes in the finish and a gossamer yet clearly present astringency offer complexity — in a good way. For the price, I’d happily load up on this wine by the case.
