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.
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.
We tried the Sterling Vintner's Collection 2007 Chardonnay with pasta carbonara, thus testing the Chardonnay with both smoky flavors and creamy textures. We found that the pairing was pretty good — the Sterling Chardonnay was sharper, tarter, and drier when paired with the pasta carbonara, which in turn made eating the pasta more enjoyable.
Because it's marked acidity, the 2007 Catena Alamos Torrontes is a wine that's better to pair with the right food than it is to just sip alone; fortunately, when paired with the right foods it really shines. Light-bodied with a fairly short-to-medium length, the flavors consist primarily of tropic fruits and melon.
Like other muscat wines the Alice White Lexia is very sweet but it is also very flavorful. It tastes strongly of mangos with some melons. It has a slightly tart finish, but I think it would be better if it were a little more acidic so that it would have a crisper finish. Alice White's Lexia is made from Muscat grapes in South Eastern Australia and is one of Alice White's most recent lines of wine. The Muscat grape appears to do quite well in the climate of South Eastern Australia, allowing Alice White to produce an unusually good desert wine.
