Wine Review: Dos Minas Torrontes Cafayate Argentina 2019

dos minas torrontesIn the dead of winter, this wine will take you where all is air and light under a vigorous summer sun.

The scent of rose petal provides Torrontes’ signature soapy fragrance, joined by tangerine, grapefruit, and mint with a hint of sea breeze.

Well balanced and refreshing on the palate, nestled between textured dry extract and angular acidity, the softening lines of pure fruit insinuate richness, despite its featherweight. A bit of spritz inspires a dance of strangers as the wine finishes tartly.

Carefree and gleeful, like a wacky child, it has no serious purpose but to make you laugh and sing under Bebel Gilberto’s Jabuticaba tree.
