It has a beautiful structure and acidity along with enticing fruit flavors yet quite dry, this wine has to be tasted to be understood. Torrontes can be a strong match with food, but higher acidity can offset a creamy, buttery dish, and the perception of fruity sweetness may override spicy foods. Best enjoyed in its youth either by itself, or as a wonderful partner with smoked meats, mild to medium-strong cheeses, and it is ideal for Asian cuisine, seafood and desserts. As well as is thoroughly enjoyable alone as an aperitif and amazingly refreshing when well chilled.
