Terrazas de los Andes Torrontes 2015 May 5, 2017


(Salta, Argentina) $18

Buenos Aires circa 1950; the lobby of a grand hotel. Ceiling fans circle lazily in the heat. Elegant women and well-dressed men feign desire for one another, but it’s too damn hot to do much more than drape oneself limply over a setee. Then a waiter arrives with an ice bucket. Inside, a cold bottle from Salta, beading up with condensation. This is that wine. Bracing, spicy, refreshing. Just enough edgy citrus to enliven the mood. Torrontés is Argentine’s racy white. This one, from 40 year old vineyards in the Andes, deserves to be part of your summer. (13.6% abv)
