Gougenheim Valle Escondido (Argentina) Torrontes, 2016

Torrontes is a white wine grape that is often compared to Viognier. It offers up highly aromatic floral scents but basically dry flavors. That is precisely what I get from this wine. Medium light yellow. Spring flowers and white peaches. Donna also gets a Riesling-like smell of petrol. Very refreshing in the mouth. More body than you might expect from the aromas. Ripe but moderately tart with some mineral and earth tones. A good wine for summer and spring sipping.
