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.
