Feasting Pretty: Crios Torrontes Wine

I was recently in Buenos Aires, Argentina where I tasted amazing wines, feasted on delicious food, and explored a city that I fell in love with several years ago. A discovery I made there was Crios Torrontes Wine. Most people think of Argentina and Malbec. It’s the country’s signature grape, but a crisp, flavorful, and light Torrontes gives the Malbec a run for its money. The Torrontes grape is from the Salta region of Argentina –  in the north region of the country.

In the DC area we went from winter to summer in a matter of days and as much as I love a good red wine it’s too hot to drink it this time of year. I normally go for Chardonnay, but this Torrontes is now my new favorite white wine. Most Chardonnays are heavy and taste of oak. Torrontes is a light wine, low acidity, and easy on the palette. It’s a perfect summer wine with an even better price point.
