The Yllum Torrontes is grown in the Salta Province of Argentina. Located in a mountainous region in the North, the vineyards are 5,576 to 7,800 feet above sea level, the highest growing region in the country. The Torrontes is a young wine, it is aged for 2 months in stainless steel tanks, so a drink it now wine, it will not cellar long.
The color is a pale, pale straw yellow, just hints of color. The nose is vibrant with fresh fruit and flowers, white peaches stand out. The taste is light citrus, tart, clean, it reminds me of 7-Up. Good balanced acidity on the finish.
This is a food wine, just the ticket for your favorite BYOB spicy Asian joint.
