Viña Antigua Torrontes Ugni Blanc 2009 Argentina

A blend of half Torrontes and half Ugni Blanc (known as Trebbiano and is also used in the production of Cognac), this tasty but simple white wine from Mendoza, Argentina begins with pearly, mineral notes. The mid-palate follows with a full, fruity demeanor of pineapple, melon, pears and a buttery, round style, pleasant acidity and smooth finish.
