Wine Find: 2012 Alamos Torrontes

From: Salta, Argentina

Price: $13

Serve with: Full-flavored fish, turkey

Torrontes is an exceptionally fine white wine grape, grown mostly in Argentina. This is an unusual version but a very good one. It's more full-bodied than typical wines from this grape. Its weight and texture are reminiscent of an Oregon pinot gris, which is not a bad thing. But where the typical torrontes might pair up with snapper, this version would be more salmon-friendly. It's intensely flavorful wine with flavors of mulling spices, pear and tropical fruit. It offers great complexity for its price.
