Tasting- Maipe Torrontes

Maipe-Torrontes.jpg

Name: Maipe

Variety: Torrontes

Region: Mendoza

Country: Aregentina

Year: 2014

Price: $14

Shop Notes: The wine has a spring-like nose of fresh white peaches, pears, green apple, green melon and hints of jasmine and rose petals. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and acidity along with fruit flavors and plenty of body. Well-balanced, this wine displays a pleasant freshness with citrus notes and a long finish.

My Notes: I thought the nose had a flowery smell which I had never quite identified in a wine before but it was fairly evident in this one. As far as the body goes, I thought it was very citrusy, light, and refreshing.

I did not have this with food.
