Tasting Notes: Citrus, Passion fruit, Mineral, Peach
After 22 years of winemaking, Susana Balbo has a strong sense of what she wants from her wines. She has made wine in Australia, California, Chile, France, Italy, South Africa, and Spain, and she spends a month each year in a different wine region of the world studying with local winemakers and growers. Crios was founded as a tribute to her children. The label features a series of three connected and overlapping hands, an image inspired by a Mayan artifact.
Wines under Susana's Crios label display ripe fruit flavors, excellent balance and concentration, and are meant to be enjoyed in their vibrant youth. This Torrontes is no exception. Sourced from the highest Andean vineyard, it's crisp, light and refreshing. It blossoms with flavors of white flowers, pear, apples, peach, citrus, lemon skin, melon, lime, and hints of stone. Pairs well with seafood or salad.
