2008 Michel Torino Torrontes Reserve Don David
On the nose I got pineapple, white flowers, apricots, tropical notes, honey, pear, lemon, spice, and white pepper. The nose on Torrontes wines is almost immediately recognizable…the florals and honey notes just float out of the glass without you having to get close to it. In the mouth I found lemon, orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, and lime. This wine had great acidity and I found it to be a really good effort.
