2014 Amalaya Torrontés - Riesling

This is a cool blend out of Argentina that I’m digging. Pineapple, papaya, lime, a spritz of lemon, and honeysuckle on the nose. Tropical fruit basket - pineapples, guavas, papayas, mangos - initially on the palate with honeysuckle mid-palate and a lemon-lime finish. The crispness of the Riesling really gives nice structure and acidic zing to the tropical fruit notes of the Torrontés. Clearly a different style from a straight Torrontés, but certainly one that I enjoy, especially at this price!
