Happy Hour: 2008 Colomé Torrontés

Last week I went to an Argentine wine tasting where I tried Colomé's 2008 Torrontés ($10.87). One of Argentina's most popular white grapes, the Torrontés grape was originally from Spain. Generally speaking Torrontés are similar to a Muscat or Gewürtztraminer.

From the Salta region of Argentina, the Bodega Colomé estate is one of the world's highest (over 7,500 feet) vineyards. Their Torrontés is an exceptional white with fruity aromas and a zingy finish. Crisp and clean, this delightful, light white is perfect chilled. It's highly drinkable and would be an excellent start to dinner. Pair with cured meats, cheese, and seafood.

Have you tried a Torrontés or any other wine from Argentina?

my favorite is also malbec, but since that's a red - i'm open to different types of white. i guess while i was in college i only had the bad whites so i've been a bit fearful of them, since i don't like overly tangy wines, but if you say that this one is zingy - that's not too bad right? i might have to see if my wine store has it or if they can get it in.
