About

91

I also tasted the 2016 Torrontés Serie A from Salta, from a vintage that looks superb for whites in this northern location. This is still very young, and contrary to what most people think, I like (good) Torrontés after some time in bottle. They got very low yields because of some early frost, but it was a very different vintage than the one in Mendoza; here, it was a lot drier and healthier. This is sharp and balanced, with great freshness, bone dry and austere, elegant without overpowering aromas. There are aromas of pear and green apple, not as perfumed as many examples of the grape, a little closed, but should develop more floral notes with some time in the bottle. This should be superb with some more time in bottle; it opened up nicely with time in the glass. 60,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2016; it's usually bottled the first spring after the harvest.
