WTN: 2007 Santa Julia Tardio Late Harvest Torrontes

Postby JC (NC) » Tue Jul 14, 2009 1:37 pm

Mendoza, Argentina

Familia Zuccardi 500 ml. bottle 9.5% alcohol
Medium gold color with clarity. Nose hints of apple juice and peach juice. Flavors suggest a fruit compote including those fruits and a touch of honey. Retains some crispness that blocks any cloying tendency.

With its low alcohol and pleasant taste when chilled, this is an attractive summer after-dinner drink or accompaniment to a peach, apricot, or apple dessert. If I buy more, i would like to pair it with peach cobbler.
