Have you had enough Sauvignon Blanc? Bored of Pinot Grigio? Are you looking for a crisp, white wine with a bit more umpf and loads of personality?
The word you are looking for is Torrontés (tohr-rohn-tess), and it refers to the name of a little known grape variety from Argentina. A rare crossing between the highly aromatic Muscat of Alexandria—maybe the most elegant grape in the Muscat family—and Criolla Chica—or Mission—this varietal is native to Argentina.
