Jose L. Mounier Torrontes 2009 Argentina

From Argentina's Alto Valle de Cafayate Salta, this 100% Torrontes shows fall colors of pale yellow/greenish straw, herbal aromatics with pineapple and grapefruit rind, so it's dry but floral. Upon opening the bottle the vibrant aromas assault on fresh, herbal waves swimming with notes of honeydew melon. There is a very nice balance with a finish that shows a hint of spice, and at the very end switches over to apple. 13.5% alcohol. Salmon Dijon with baby broccoli should pair well with this fresh, clean white wine.
