Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Instead, go for the 2012 Colome Torrontes. It has a very similar bouquet to the 2011, although the palate is much fresher and vibrant with subtle Conference pear and bruised apple notes towards the finish. It is simple, but refreshing. Drink now.

BODEGA COLOME 2012 COLOME TORRONTES
"Colomé regularly makes one of Argentina’s best Torrontés. This vintage is fresh on the nose, with tropical leanings and lychee aromas. The palate offers pointed acidity and lively flavors of passion fruit, lychee and citrus. This finishes crisp and juicy, but not sizzling or sharp." Wine Enthusiast 89 points

|In a quest to find the source of an exceptional Malbec that he had at a dinner in a small bodega in Salta, Donald Hess searched for three years to find this winery in Argentina's Salta Province. Now home to Bodega and Estancia Colomé, this winery was founded in 1831. Its vineyards, at 6,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, include vines that are 160 years old.
Completely renovated and revitalized by Donald Hess, Bodega Colomé focuses on Argentina's two traditional varietals, Malbec and Torrontes, producing wines that receive international accolades. The age of the vines, biodynamic practices, and altitude combine to create these distinctive, bold and intense wines that speak of their origin.
