“Pale, bright yellow. Delicate aromas of lemon drop, spring flowers, spice and licorice. Juicy, fresh and supple, with a light citrussy flavor. Quite dry and laid-back. Finishes minty and slightly warm, with decent length and life.”
Bright green-tinged yellow. Complex aromas of citrus peel, licorice, botanical herbs and jasmine. Chewy, with strong lemony acidity giving an almost tart character to the subtle stone fruit and soil flavors. Dry and sophisticated torrontes, about much more than merely fruit.
The new releases from Bodega Nieto Senetiner include one white wine, the 2010 Torrontes Reserva sourced from La Rioja. It was fermented and aged in stainless steel for 6 months. It exhibits a pleasing perfume of spring flowers, lemon, and tropical fruits leading to a just off-dry, medium bodied wine in need of a bit more depth and concentration. Drink it over the next 12 – 18 months.
Pale silvery-yellow. Orange peel, spices and flowers on the nose. Juicy citrus flavors lifted by a floral element. Boasts good texture and intensity for a wine in this price rather, with sound acidity giving shape to the peach, citrus and floral flavors. Finishes supple and persistent.
Shows barely any color and then a hard, vapid, no-fruit bouquet. The mouthfeel is citric and the tastes range from lemon to lemon. Pithy, tart and frankly it’s a barely drinkable rendition of Argentina’s signature white grape.
