Santa Julia Torrontes/Pinot Grigio 2011
Like its red stablemate this Argenine white, a blend of 90% Torrontes and 10% Pinot Grigio. is a relatively simple but eminently drinkable wine, with the melon and peach elements characteristic of a Torrontes, but just enough of the Pinot Grigio acidity and flintiness to make it interesting. Once again, at $6.99 for the liter bottle, a tremendous buy. I don't quite see how this vineyard manages it, but I certainly wish it all the luck in the world.
