Province: La RiojaGimenez Riili Buenos Hermanos Torrontes 2012
Grapes: 100% Torrontes
A surprisingly rich torrontes, given its faint color in the glass, this wine begins with a strong aroma of orange blossom backed by a tinge of the grape’s characteristic green plum. In the mouth, the texture is of melted butter, with sharper notes of lime and ginger alongside the robust green plum flavor. There’s plenty acidity, too, for white wine’s traditional food pairings.
