Torrontes is a grape variety that is both an emerging star of white wines, and something completely unknown, all at once.  Hailing from Argentina, the Torrontes grape is unique, even to other Argentine varieties.  Found nowhere else in the world (although there is a Torrontes varietal found in the Galicia region of Spain (also known as Albillo), yet the Spanish Torrontes is completely unrelated), the Argentine Torrontes produces wines of extraordinary aromatic intrigue and flavor profile.

While cultivated in the provinces of Catamarca, La Rioja, Mendoza, Salta, Rio Negro and San Juan, the best of these provinces suited for Torrontes is Salta.  Farther north than Mendoza, its higher altitudes lend to a cooler climate, allowing the grape to ripen more evenly, developing its beautiful white flower and peach aromatics, and its lean, spicy acidic backbone.

One Torrontes I recently tried was the Terrazas de los Andes Torrontes Salta 2010, produced by Moet-Hennessy and senior winemaker Adrian Meyer.   Grade=Outstanding, this wine is crisp and lively with white flowers in the nose, a bit of lychee, apricot and melon across the palate, and  finishing with well-balanced minerality.

I have had some other Torrontes recently (see Diseno, La Boca, Zuccardi) and the Terrazas stands out for its price point (you could find it for around $16).

Definitely look this one up, and explore the interesting qualities of this uniquely Argentine grape.
