Alamos Torrontes 2007
The Torrontes grape has been brought into full form in Argentina. This white, while not quite on a level with the Don David, is nevertheless a superior product. It greets the palate with an almost explosive burst of white fruit, tempered with just the right degree of acidity. My only complaint is that the finish is not as long lasting as one would wish it to be. Ideal as an accompaniment to shell fish, although we had it with veal cutlets and it worked just fine. $11.99 in PA, which strikes me as being on the high side (On sale in NJ at $7.99)..
