Time to expand your horizons by discovering new wines. And summer is the perfect season to try a special, aromatic summer sipping white--Torrontes Reserve, from Michel Torino Estate, Don David, in Cafayate Valley, Argentina. Torrontes is the emblematic white wine of Argentina and the varietal is getting rave reviews.
This is a vibrant, racy white wine that has a unique bouquet, showing aromas of flowers, (actually red roses) along with other floral scents and citrus flavors of lime, peach, lychee and accompanied by bright acidity that leads to a dry, crisp finish. This fabulous white is featured on our summer tasting menu and is perfectly paired with our colorful Fresh Garden Vegetable Salad that bursts with yellow and green beans, beets, cauliflower, broccoli, tomato, hard boiled organic egg, topped with croutons, crumbled bleu cheese and swiped with bleu cheese dressing on the bottom of the plate.
The crunchy texture of the vegetables reminds me of my childhood years, picking fresh vegetables while grazing on them from our large garden, and the wine reminds me of being outside surrounded by beautiful aromas of fresh flowers. This Torrontes Reserve from theMichel Torino Estate is available by the glass ($8.75 for a six ounce glass; $13.25 for a nine ounce glass) --- or $35.00 for the bottle.
