Torrontés

Torrontés is the characteristic white wine grape of Argentina, producing fresh, aromatic white wines. Three criolla varieties exist in Argentina: Torrontés Riojano, the most common; Torrontés Sanjuanino; and Torrontés Mendocino. The Salta region, in northern Argentina, is generally thought to produce the best wines from this variety. Genetically related to Muscat, it shows that relationship through a highly aromatic character, which can become very rich when the grapes are harvested in the traditional, fully-ripe style. However, this traditional style is also characterized by an almost oily texture and some bitterness, which has led it to fall somewhat out of favour, with most producers now favouring earlier picking and more citric notes. A grape called Torrontés is also found in Galicia in Spain.
