Description

Crios Torrontés 2020

Crisp, refreshing and aromatic, with a bouquet of citrus fruits, passion fruit, lychee and white flowers. Lively acidity, a hint of creaminess and a long, mineral finish add depth and balance to the palate.

Susana is known as the “Queen of Torrontés” for her role in transforming Torrontés from an unknown blending grape into Argentina’s star white varietal.

100% Torrontés, hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at 12-14ºC (54-57ºF). Conservation on lees for three months to improve the structure of the wine

Crios was born out of Susana Balbo’s love for her children and desire to forge a legacy for her family, helping them navigate their own life journeys with lessons learned from a lifetime of trailblazing entrepreneurship. The iconic handprint logo on each Crios bottle symbolizes this relationship and illustrates hands as powerful tools for mothers, allowing them to hold, to provide warmth, to nourish, and to comfort, as well as to teach the next generation the skills and wisdom achieved.

Conviction, energy, and identity all go into making something with your hands, establishing an indelible personal mark. Tending the Crios wines in a way to bring out the very best, Susana and her team choose the region of Argentina most suited for growing each particular grape, and then nurture every variety to elevate its intrinsic character.

Give this Torrontés from Salta a go too!

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 

So much brightness here with sliced lime and some lemon zest. Plenty of minerally character, too. Medium and vivid. Crisp.

The varietal and expressive 2020 Críos Torrontés is very grapey and fruit-driven and has aromas of Moscatel pulp and some citrus notes. The palate is light, austere.
