Wine Review: Trumpeter Rutini Wines 2010 Torrontes, Mendoza Argentina

This was a wonderful white wine to sample. The color is a light straw. The nose has beautiful aromas of peach and floral notes, similar to a Viognier or Pinot Gris. The palate has citrus notes, hints of peach, grapefruit and mineral notes, that makes you just want to keep on sipping.  The wine also has a wonderful fruit and mineral infused finish. This wine reminds me of a cross between Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. The mineral notes do add that Sauvignon Blanc flavor profile to this wine! So, as you can imagine, this is a white wine begging to be sipped in spring or summer. I would sip this wine alone or pair it with fresh goat cheese on a thin slice of french bread, grilled fish, crab cakes, grilled shrimp with a sweet glaze or orange glazed pork or chicken.  Note:  This wine was a sample provided by Pasternak Wine Imports
