Our review: Light gold in color, this wine has aromas of tropical fruit (guava) and honey with distinct floral notes. The fruit flavors are moderated on the palate somewhat with a mild acidity, but are nicely balanced. The finish has good complexity with just a touch of smokiness.

Our rating: We enjoy this varietal, but unfortunately don't see it very often. We served this bottle with chicken and pasta in a creamy sauce, with which it paired very well. We previously rated the Lo Tengo Torrontes 2005 just Average; this vintage is better.
