88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013

Pale, bright silver-yellow color.  Highly perfumed aromas of lemon drop, white flowers, peppermint and white pepper.  Supple, pliant and easygoing, with citrus, herbal and floral flavors joined by a hint of licorice.  Shows a touch of heat on the finish.  Offers good weight in the mouth but seems less intense than the 2011.  Susana Balbo declassified a lot of fruit in the difficult 2012 harvest, making this wine mostly from Mendoza vines planted to the Salta clone of torrontes, as she finds the Mendoza clone's flavors too fleeting.
