2008 Maipe Torrontés

Varietal Region Type
Torrontés Salta, Argentina Soft Medium-Bodied White
Alive with bright flavors of melon, citrus and minerals, this wine is fruity and floral yet still quite dry. Poised on the edge of softness, the palate retains a seam of brisk acidity that cuts through the fruit, leaving an overall impression of balance and harmony.

Additional Wine Information

Story
Torrontés is the white wine king of Argentina. The only wine grape that is considered entirely Argentinean, it is cultivated in each of the country's wildly diverse wine regions. In Salta, a spectacularly mountainous province tucked into Argentina's northwest corner, Torrontés is the most widely planted grape. Typically light-bodied and crisply acidic, the wine produced by this grape has exuberantly floral aromas that recall those of its cousin Muscat. The Maipe winery is a family-owned estate named for the ancient Andean Lord of the Winds. Argentinean farmers still invoke his name to clear the skies after a heavy rain or to temper the summer heat. And in the environment of high-altitude winemaking, one can understand why having nature's higher powers on one's side would be a wise idea. But Maipe's winemaker, the young and prodigiously talented Liliana Iannizzotto, seems to need no such aid to create stunning wines, particularly with renowned Italian consultant Alberto Antonini as part of her team.
Sense
Vivid aromas of fresh white peaches and orange blossom mingle with floral notes of jasmine and rose.
Savor
Alive with bright flavors of melon, citrus and minerals, this wine is fruity and floral yet still quite dry. Poised on the edge of softness, the palate retains a seam of brisk acidity that cuts through the fruit, leaving an overall impression of balance and harmony.
Serve
Look to this wine for your next meal of Indian, Southeast Asian or Latin American fare. Its acidity will cut through rich curries, and its aromatic freshness and fruitiness can stand up to the heat of chilies and strong seasonings. As for protein partners, the wine's lighter structure calls for fish and shellfish. The wine also pairs marvelously with northern Argentinean food, such as chicken empanadas and corn stew.
Serving Instructions
Serve well chilled (47°F).
