The best homework assignment Ever Invented is to drink wine, of a variety that you have never tried before. So glad I signed up for that! So today I bought a Torrontes from Argentina. And it is delightful! I am so glad I know about this now.
I found this Espuela del Gaucho 2014 Torrontes to have a nose which is warm and pear-like. The palate is full of body, hints of citrus, delicately floral, maybe melon, definitely dry. It has a nice long finish. The tasting notes on the website include apple and peach, so that is probably what I was calling pear and melon.
This wine was very inexpensive at $17, found at my local grocer. Have you tried anything new lately? Did your curiosity pay off or was it a dud?
