Varietal: Torrontes
Torrontes wines are generally easy drinking. They are high in acidity, and are intriguingly aromatic including subtle spice notes and a floral bouquet.

Country: Argentina
A source of great value wines, whether they're for everyday drinking or laying down. Malbec has taken off as the predominant red wine grape variety, producing deeply colored fruity wines with good texture and weight. Bonarda, thought to have been brought over from the Savoie region of France is the second most popular variety. Almost exclusively produced in Argentina, Torrontés is the most popular white wine variety. The Cafayete Valley in Salta producing some of the finest examples which typically display distinctive floral aromas. Although a newcomer to the country with just a 1000 hectares in 1990, Chardonnay has taken off with great success and is now the third most popular white variety with 16,000 acres under vine (2012).

Region: La Rioja
La Rioja is a wine region in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in western Argentina, north of Mendoza and San Juan. The mountainous terroir of the region is particularly suited to the white-grape variety Torrontes, which produces crisp, aromatic white wines. Locals argue that La Rioja was one of the first Argentinian regions to have vines planted in it, and Spanish settlers in the late 16th Century are widely credited with being the first to plant grapes here. In fact, La Rioja was named for the northern Spanish region of the same name by Juan Ramirez de Velasco, a Spaniard from Rioja itself. This has caused some animosity between the two regions: in 2011, the Argentinian province won a court case allowing it to continue to label its wines as 'La Rioja Argentina'.

Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
