Torrontés

Name given to several different Spanish varieties but most famously encountered as the name of three distinct varieties in Argentina where they produce full-bodied, crisp wines with a distinctively grapey and confident aroma not unlike Muscat. Torrontés Riojano is the most common, an accidental crossing of Muscat of Alexandria and Criolla Chica, named after the northern province of La Rioja where, in Salta in particular, it is by far the most planted single vine variety. Torrontés Sanjuanino and the rarer, less aromatic Torrontés Mendocino are also grown.
