What made this wine fit our theme for the night?: This wine was not from our wine club. I bought it to share with some girlfriends for a mid-week gab fest!

Comments: I had never had Torrontes wine before and the $10 price tag spoke to me! I bought this wine at the Signature Liquor Store.  It is a medium-bodied white wine that is really, really, aromatic. It has a surprisingly strong bouquet. Bouquet is Winese for smell…. Those snobs. Busy making up a language. Really.

While I was a fan of the body and of the nose (another Winese term) I wasn’t a huge fan of the favour. It’s a perfumey wine. Some people really love the floral, perfumey taste of some white wines. Many cool climate grapes produce these types of flavours. I am not one of those people.

While it was ok for sipping I got a very soapy finish from it. That’s after taste for non-winers. Some people like that too. I am not one of those people either.

I’d be willing to try this wine with dinner but I don’t think it is a sipper. I’ll let you know if it goes great with something one day!

Would I buy this wine again? Yes – but only because it is an okay wine for $9.99. That’s a great price for a wine with body and flavour like this!
