Wine & Food Pairing

Like the aromas, the flavors of the 2009 Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes are mostly tropical fruit but combined with a bit of citrus. This is a dry, light-bodied white wine with marked acidity and a moderate flavor intensity. Like other Torrontes, it's best when drunk cold and shouldn't be allowed to warm up too much.

Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes 2009 Tasting Notes

Color & Clarity
The 2009 Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes has a strong yellow color of medium depth with greenish tinges.

Nose
The aromas of the this Torrontes are quite strong and consist primarily of tropical fruit, maybe some peach or pear, and a bit of honeysuckle.

Palate
Like the aromas, the flavors of the 2009 Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes are mostly tropical fruit but combined with a bit of citrus. This is a dry, light-bodied white wine with marked acidity and a moderate flavor intensity. Like other Torrontes, it's best when drunk cold and shouldn't be allowed to warm up too much.

Food Pairing
  • Sushi: When paired with salmon and tuna sushi, the 2009 Mendoza becomes creamier and a bit more tart. This is an excellent pairing, making the Mendoa Station Torrontes a great choice of wine to have — and probably with sushi of all types.
  • Guacamole: When paired with guacamole, the 2009 Mendoza becomes both more tart and more sweet. This is a very good combination that is worth trying but you should use fresh-made guacamole for the best results. I'm not sure that the the Mendoa Station Torrontes would be a good with pre-made guacamole from the grocery store.

Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes

The Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes is a great wine to have with sushi. Torrontes in general are good wines for sushi, but the Mendoza Station Reserva definitely stands out in this area.
