Classic Torrontés on the nose, this barrel-fermented example is made by master winemaker Susana Balbo – who put this uniquely Argentinian wine back on the map.
94 Wine Advocate:
The wild 2018 Susana Balbo Signature Torrontés Barrel Fermented might have some herbal aromas that can remind you of Sauvignon Blanc, but there is no trace of it; it's pure Torrontés from a cooler part and harvested early to keep the freshness. This is one of the most characterful Torrontés from Argentina. It has a vibrant palate with expressive herbal notes and citrus hints. It has electricity, chalkiness and a long, tasty finish. It has moderate alcohol and great acidity. A truly impressive Torrontés. 15,000 bottles were filled in September 2018.
