2010 Lamadrid Torrontes

Mendoza, Argentina


$13-$15 Retail

Lamadrid was made from 100 percent torrontes grapes from Argentina's La Rioja, a sub-region of Mendoza. It was unfiltered, unfined and aged 5 months in cement vats to preserve its characteristic style. The result is a light, crisp and versatile wine that offers aromas of melon, lemon peel, a touch of ginger and floral notes. On the palate, taste zesty citrus, a stony minerality, hints of pear and apricot and a balanced finish. Sip it as an aperitif or pair it with salads, light soups, smoked salmon, shellfish, sushi, grilled fish, soft cheeses, roasted almonds and dried or fresh fruit. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle, W.I.N.O., Breaux Mart in Uptown and Dorignac's. Drink it at: Mike's on the Avenue, Clever and W.I.N.O.
