Alamos Salta Argentina 2011 Torrontés White Wine




Alamos Salta Argentina 2011 Torrontés White Wine, $9.59-$11.99, 85 points, was a dark straw yellow, and the aromas were cantaloupe, honeysuckle, and petrol (on the cusp of too much petrol).
The medium-plus body carried fair acids and robust flavors that mirrored the aromas.
Finished fair on the trailing palate with a hint of the 13.5% alcohol and tangerine.
Alamos Salta Argentina 2011 Torrontés reminded me of a heavy-bodied, off dry Riesling without the finesse, though it is akin to the Muscat grape.
It did pair well with sautéed sea scallops and crab Rangoon.
