This WINE PICK of the month was written for the Luke's of Cape Cod website.
Torrontés is unique to Argentina and it's kind of a fascinating grape family with historic roots. The three Torrontés varieties are all crosses of the Mission grape, which the Conquistadors and monks brought over to the Americas, and Muscat of Alexandria, perhaps the oldest wine grape on Earth.
Unfortunately most Torrontés available lack personality. When done right, as Argentineans know, it's nothing but personality. Zolo makes theirs from the Torrontés Riojano variety, and it's the epitome of Torrontés done right.
This is the best Torrontés I've ever had, and it's one of my favorite white's that we carry. Pair it with fish and a spring salad, or popcorn and a movie.
Rating: 5/5 = Highly Recommended.
(what does that mean?)
The bottle used was purchased by myself for the purpose of this review.
