Produced from Argentina's most emblematic grape, this Torrontés is a deeply aromatic golden-colored white wine exhibiting floral notes of candied peaches and roses. Flavors of tropical fruits flood the mouth like a torrent with an extra zing of spice and acidity on the finish. With good balance and body, it is ideal as an apertif or the perfect match for fresh seafood. Serve chilled.
