Alamos Torrentes 2007 wine review by (PB)

This rising star from Argentina has a rather spectacular bouquet of gentle peach and perfume.

Palate is flavorful in the front with a baby powder and peach nectar presence that's really delicious with a soapy clean (think, Irish Spring) clean finish! At the $10 price point, try this on for size
for a change from the usual whites you might be used to.

"Torrontes" is the grape and is gaining in popularity. No wonder! Raise a glass...

Alamos White for $10 really was a clean, wonderful wine. Compare to say, Meridian (Santa Barbara county) Chardonnay which is sickly sweet. You immediately respond to this one and think, wow, I can't wait for my 2nd glass! Would pair well with so many kinds of accompaniments too. I bought mine at the fabulous WINEHOUND shop in Santa Barbara.
