Wine & Food Pairing

The 2008 Alta Vista Premium Torrontes is much drier than many other Torrontes that you can find out there. If you want a sweeter and fruitier Torrontes, this is not for you if you'd like a more complex Torrontes and the chance to experience this varietal in a different light, then this wine is worth looking for. It will probably go well with spicier and bolder dishes.

Alta Vista Premium Torrontes 2008 Tasting Notes & Review

Color & Clarity
The 2008 Alta Vista Premium Torrontes is a bright golden-yellow color with hints of green.

Nose
The aromas of the 2008 Alta Vista Premium Torrontes are fairly subtle and consist of honeysuckle and fresh fruit.

Palate
The flavors of the 2008 Alta Vista Premium Torrontes are not as fruity as the aromas and there can be a sharp aftertaste, perhaps due to the strong alcohol content. This Torrontes is rather dry, medium-bodied, and has a marked acidity. It's less dry with food, but not by a lot.

Food Pairing
  • Orange Roughy: Pairing the Alta Vista Torrontes with orange roughy made it more acidic, which makes it a good match.
  • with creamy sauce: The addition of a creamy sauce makes the Torrontes a bit milder and lessens the sharp bite as it warms.

Bottom Line
The 2008 Alta Vista Premium Torrontes is much drier than many other Torrontes that you can find out there. If you want a sweeter and fruitier Torrontes, this is not for you; if you'd like a more complex Torrontes and the chance to experience this varietal in a different light, then this wine is worth looking for. It will probably go well with spicier and bolder dishes.
