Susana Balbo, Signature Barrel-fermented Torrontes, Uco
(at Weekday Wines Tasting, 21 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2026
Susana Balbo is known as the 'Queen of Torrontés' and her consistently good barrel-fermented wine shows why. Made with grapes grown at 1,150m in Altamira, it is both fermented and aged in French oak for four months. Bright, fruity, citrus aromas: lime, grapefruit, peach, plus a whisper of florality and chalky mineral notes. The vibrant palate is well-structured, driven by crisp citrus with a mineral core balanced by a creaminess to the texture, with pretty notes of peach and apricot running beneath. Finishes crisp and fresh with lingering stone fruit and tropical notes.
