Urban Uco Torrontés 2009 Argentina

¡Caramba! That's Wow! in Spanish.

This inexpensive white wine from the Cafayette apellation in the North West Region of Argentina is in the $9-10 range... no malo, verdad? It's made with 100% Torrontés grapes and is so fragrant and snappy that the first whiff just put a big smile on my face.

And springtime is the season where it takes me, with flowery aromas of honeysuckle, lemon rind, honeydew melons and peaches... then finishes like a bright sunny May afternoon.

¡Viva Torrontes!
