I had my first Torrontés at a wine bar in Napa a few days before departing to Argentina for vacation. Here, it has become my go-to white. It has yet to disappoint. Having tasted dozens of different whites here, Torrontés has been the standout. Quality is high across the board. I have yet to find a bad one, nor a boring one. The wine is fresh, clean and aromatic at times, reminiscent of Viognier. Other times it is sleeker, with vibrant, juicy acidity and nectarine and mineral notes.
Torrontés is the kind of wine you don't have to think much about, yet it provides an alluring mix of flavors, drinks easy and works well with food.
