Crios Torrontés 2019

Crios Torrontés 2019

We are never shy about our firm belief that this is, quite simply, the best Torrontés in Argentina; or at least the best unoaked example.

It has all the floral subtlety and delicate exotic nuance that this grape is so cherished for but, unlike a lot of other examples, many from Salta Province in the far north, this one is more subtly nuanced than in your face! Also, unlike many others, this one is really lean and lively on the palate, ultra zesty and fresh. In fact, texture wise, it feels more like a very good Sauvignon Blanc, such is the acid balance and structure in relation to the lovely ripeness of fruit. Stunning.

91 / 100, Tim Atkin, Argentina Special Report 2019 (2018 vintage)

“Lean and clean profile that I expect comes from Mendoza fruit. Rich and powerful (Salta) with a sweet undertone at the back of the palate.”

"Susana Balbo's ever-reliable Torrontés is sourced from Cafayate and the Uco Valley and is a lovely expression of the grape. Aromatic, grapey and fresh, with notes of pear and stone fruit and a fresh, sappy finish. A really good introduction to Argentina's near native white grape."
