Torrontes is known in Argentina as ‘the liar.’ This is because its aromas often differ from the taste. This wine is from Co-op; their range is genuinely exciting and they have deservedly been awarded wine supermarket of the year. Torrontes is a bit of a ‘marmite’ wine… The worst wine I ever tasted, 23 years ago, was a Canadian Torrontes. It tasted like Impulse body spray. I avoided Torrontes for 22 years but was converted last Autumn in Argentina. Linda Mora has very subtle, delicate floral notes, but is still dry.
