Review: 2012 Terrazas Torrontes Reserva
This new torrontes from Argentina’s Terrazas de los Andes offers tropical character right from the start, with just a hint of bitter hops on the nose. That herbal character builds on the body — particularly as the wine warms a bit — bringing the spirit to a nicely balanced whole that infuses floral aromatics with peaches, pineapple, mango, and apple plus some touches of rosemary and sage. Fun stuff that lies somewhere between a Gewurztraminer and an unoaked Chardonnay. Great with spicy food.
