Torrontes 2011 Bodegas Colome, Valle Calchaqui, Argentina
Torrontes is one the most unique and expressive whites in the world and Colome's is one of the best. Colome is a winery with a long history in Argentina going back to the 1800's. Now owned by Donald Hess of Hess Collection in Napa Valley, Colome is one of the premier producers in South America. Their vineyards where this Torrontes is grown are in the very cool, very high altitude Salta Region. At 5,000 to 9,000 feet above sea level grapes get direct sunlight and the rarefied air allows a high level of ultraviolet rays, making the skins hearty and developing complex flavors in the grapes. The cool mountain air lets the grapes ripen slowly, keeping all of their bright mouthwatering acidity. Torrontes is a distant relation to Muscat Alexandria and exhibits exotic and perfumed aromas and flavors. 90 points from both Wine & Spirits and The International Wine Cellar who said "Bright, pale yellow. Very pure, perfumed aromas of ginger, licorice, rose petal and brown spices. Concentrated, supple and ripe, with impressive sappy intensity to the flavors of spices and fresh herbs. Builds nicely on the back half, finishing with lovely saline persistence and chewy grip."

      Comments about Torrontes 2011 Bodegas Colome, Valle Calchaqui, Argentina:

      Lovely combination of green apple, lemon zest and melon on the nose with similar flavors following through on the palate. It's clean and crisp with a zesty undertone that keeps the mouthfeel light and the finish pretty dry. Fun wine for the Spring
