Torrontés is the superstar white grape of Argentina, producing full-blown dry whites in the windswept foothills of the Andes. It bears an uncanny resemblance to viognier. Expect to find a vibrant nose of musk stick, white peach and citrus oil, while its palate is expansive, full and broad with slippery texture, firm acidity and a long drying finish.

If you’re looking for something that comes from a southern hemisphere rugby playing nation that isn’t bloody New Zealand, this is it. It’s a shining example of Argentina’s most enticing white variety – the alluring Torrontés. Expect expressive aromas of freshly crushed grapes and blossom.Nick Ryan, FHM (01/FEB/2010)
Torrontes is a grape indigenous to Argentina. In this case, it makes a tart, lime-citrus, floral dry white wine that sees no oak and would make a terrific aperitif to hand to guests or pour with seafood, chicken, entree salads or light pastas. Argento -- the name comes from the Latin word for silver -- is in Mendoza, was established in 1999 and has grown to be a leading brand in European markets.Sandra Silfven, The Detroit News (20/JAN/2010)
Torrontés is one of Argentinas most beloved and widely produced wines. The herbaceous quality in this bottle begins with floral and mint on the nose, sailing effortlessly into eucalyptus notes and a grapefruit finish. This wine has a very solid structure. Kristine Hansen, Slashfood (24/DEC/2009)
