Thanks dood! You're a giver

One of two bottles given to me as a thank you for a job well done. Torrontes has been fast becoming one of my fav whites and this bottle reaffirms the reasons why. It's pale yellow with glints of sage and really coats the glass! It has a very big and warm nose of yellow succulant fruits with notes of dry yellow grass and hints of wet minerality. It is mouth coating buttery wine with loads of pear and apricot balanced by tongue tinggling acidity and smooth minerality. The finish is lucious and long with an almost tannic quality. The GF and I paired this with oven roasted garlic chicken breasts, roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli and carrots! Yumm!!!

I love Torrontes. I've got a couple of bottles by Fantelli that are great little drinkers.

I've only had 4-5 Torrontes wines in the past, but each one has been a low priced delight. I still have a tendency to lean towards the Kiki Sauv. Blancs (especially the 2008's), but Torrontes has been making some big strides as of late. I hope stores stock up on more than the 2-3 expamples I see at any given time.

I also find that a Torrontes is often very approachable for non-wine drinkers or ones with limited exposure.

very true. I like how it has more oomph than a Vinho Verde but is still, light, crisp, uncomplicated, unpretentious, and tends to not have the "problems" that can plague some of the NZ SB (overly grassy, unfocused acids) and that can turn off non-wine drinkers. The only problem is convincing non-wine drinkers that they should buy the Torrontes and not the Vendange, KJ, or Woodbridge Chardonnay.

Whoops. I thought that sounded funny when I was reading it. Must lay off pain pills.

Budweiser. I spent the bulk of my twenties drinking cooler-than-thou microbrews but as I have grown older and richer, I've come to realize that nothing is as genuine or delicious as The King of Beers®.

FTFY. I didn't drink beer for nearly ten years after reaching legal drinking age for having tasted Budweiser in my youth -- but wine, scotch, bourbon and gin suffered no similar fate. Bud is truly is a travesty that sucks life and ability to appreciate existence out of people while making them fat. ~ H

Ending the week with a bottle of the 2004 Fire Block Old Vine Grenache. Thank heaven for the 10% above cost discount

This is such a wonderful pour! Pics and more detailed notes to come in the Wine Thread.
