Terrazas 2011 Torrontés Reserva, $11.89-$13.99, 87 points, appeared a light bronze trending straw yellow and clear at the glass shallows.
Honeysuckle, soft vanilla notes, a hint of petrol, and cantaloupe aromas were good.
The body was light-plus and carried good acidity with a creamy texture until the long finish of black pepper and ginger spices gave an edginess to this Torrontés.
Flavors mirrored the aromas with some lemon zest and hints of the 13.5% alcohol.
This was an unoaked Torrontés, and like an unoaked Chardonnay, seems to me to be a cleaner example of this white wine.
