90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

Pale yellow.  Sexy, slightly exotic aromas of wild herbs, flowers, licorice, mint and spices.  Juicy, saline and dry, with a subtly tactile mouth feel to the flavors of lemon verbena, lavender and botanical herbs.  There's an enticing dusty impression of soil here but plenty of sweet citrus fruits too.  Savory and serious but there's nothing austere about it.  An outstanding example of Argentina's distinctive torrontes, which makes a perfect aperitif.  (ST)
