A bright, fresh and aromatic Argentinian Torrontes wine, Bronze Award

A very refreshing and aromatic Torrontés from Argentina, made from grapes grown at extraordinary high altitude of 1,700 metres above sea level. Planting at such extreme altitude helps to retain high acidity to balance the natural ripeness of Argentinian grapes. This is a remarkable aromatic white, which hit the 92/100 ranking (2017 vintage) and took Bronze Medal at Argentina Wine Awards.

“A bright and fresh white with sliced apples, lemon rind and salt. Medium body, dry and bright acidity and a clean and crisp finish. Drink now.” (2018 vintage) 91/100 JamesSuckling.com

About this wine

Crios is the cutting edge brand by Susana Balbo, perhaps Argentina’s most innovative winemaker.

From the very beginning, Susana decided to experiment with Torrontés, which was a very traditional grape for Argentina. She decided to break the rules and turn it into fine wine – and her very first harvest was a success.

Susana created a premium style of Torrontés distinguished by its elegant notes of white flowers, pear and ripe peach. This work brought her international recognition, and Bronze Medal at Argentina Wine Awards in 2015. The 2018 vintage we present here received a glowing 91/100 from James Suckling.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful pale green-yellow. On the nose, it is floral, youthful and fresh. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and a great minerality with tangy acidity and notes of fresh grape.
