Cam Confidential

On our last trip to Argentina a friend of ours with the Vines of Mendoza suggested we visit a winemaker friend of hers who made wines for a high-end winery but also had projects of his own. We arranged for a visit and tasting and while everything we tasted was fantastic, the reds were simply too expensive. However, one of the white wines stood out as well, the Torrontes that the winemaker made for his own label. Sourced from the Famatina Valley in the La Rioja region of Mendoza, this was a wine he would be much happier making for us. Done deal.

The Famatina Valley sits well north of Mendoza in a high desert plateau surrounded by mountains on both sides. Dry as a whistle with plenty of high altitude solar exposure, warm days and cool nights with a huge diurnal swing, the area is a viticultural paradise for early ripening, highly aromatic whites such as Bonarda and Torrontes.

Torrontes became one of my favorites a couople of years ago, and I was thrilled when CH came out with one. We have purchased over a case so far and it remains high on our list of best value and taste!

Clean, crisp, subtle flavors of citrus, very enjoyable. Great price for the quality of the wine. Somewhat like a sauvignon blanc.

I became a fan of this wine when Cam first reviewed it. We love it for its refreshing taste and versatility; filling in between Chard and Sauvignon Blanc when it comes to paring with foods.

I have purchased several cases of this wine for entertainment of my friends, it is a very good, light, crisp, aomatic wine that can be paired with many dishes which call for a white wine. I serve it well chilled.

Brought this to a picnic this past weekend and loved it. Cool and refreshing, with mild acidity and a grapefruit finish.

Light and crisp with a citrus lemon-y touch. Gets more "ba-bam" when left out over night

Chelle

Nice floral scent, smooth on the tongue, party in the mouth.
