Rio Santos Torrontes 2003 (Argentina)

This very pale, slightly green colored Torrontes claims on the label to possess "the succulent flavor of green grapes and tangerines, and an exotic hint of gingery spice."

I found the aroma to be not unlike cinnamon and green apples, with a softly crisp and dry flavor. Subtle lemon flavors are present.

This is a refreshing wine that recalls the scent of honeysuckle on a spring breeze. I'll give it 17 out of 20.
