Hi !! This week I'll talk about a white vine variety that was created in Argentina; Torrontes. This variety is a hybrid between ordinary grapes and Moscato. When both varieties mingles they crated Torrontes which is very special and surprises all the pleople that taste it for the first time. What distinguishes this variety is that in the nose it it very sweet, it reminds moscato, honey, jasmione and thelike. Yet in the mouth it is dry and soft. this is a variety that delight everybody, you soudlnt miss it!!!

A very nice torrontés is Pietro Marini Torrontés. this wine is from north Argentina and pairs with hot food and fish. Another wine i recommend is

Viejo Isaias Torrontes dulce (sweet) This wine goes very well with desserts or just as an appetizer.
