Crios Torrontés

Uco Valley, Mendoza

Susana Balbo founded CRIOS as a tribute to her children, Jose and Ana. Together, they craft wines to be enjoyed across generations and to represent values they strive to instill in their own families. Crios Torrontes reminds us to break the rules - that tinkering with assumptions can lead to rewards like seeing a common blending grape become Argentina's star white wine.

Tasting Notes

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.

Smoked meats, medium cheeses, fish, crab, sushi.

Max. temp. 13°C. Selected yeast. Conservation over lees during 3 months in order to improve the structure of the wine.

100% Torrontés Alcohol 14%; acidity 6.1 g/L.

Grapes grown in Cafayate (Salta) and the Uco Valley (Mendoza) at an average elevation of 1,700 m.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful pale green-yellow. On the nose, it is floral, youthful and fresh. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and a great minerality with tangy acidity and notes of fresh grapes.

Grilled and roasted meats, empanadas, chili.

Max. temp. 13°C. Selected yeast. Conservation over lees during 3 months in order to improve the structure of the wine.

100% Torrontés Alcohol 13.5%; acidity 6 g/L.

Grapes grown in Cafayate (Salta) and the Uco Valley (Mendoza) at an average elevation of 1,700 m.

    Donald Winkler, International Wine Review, October 2017

    "Highly perfumed showing rose water and fresh Muscat. It’s light on the palate with perfumed, white peach fruit and firm acidity. It’s a clean, easy drinking wine. The fruit comes from high vineyards in La Rioja, Tucumán, and Mendoza with an average age of 32 years."

    Crios Torrontés
    Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, August 2018

    "Very pale color. Musky scents of lemon, fresh apricot, flowers and lichee. Salty, sappy and very dry, with a sexy musky quality that calls to mind both Condrieu and Chablis. More classic than the 2016 version, this wine should make a terrific aperitif but could also pair well with grilled fish or sushi. Susana Balbo told me that Torrontés from Cafayate is frequently too turpenic, so she has planted more Torrontés in Altamira, next to her Signature Malbec. She noted that the 2015 and 2016 versions of this bottling were more Sauvignon Blanc-like and that she picked especially early in 2017. A superb value at $15."

    Crios Torrontés
    Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, July 2018

    "The 2017 Críos Torrontés is grapey, spicy and floral, which is a combination of Cafayate with Mendoza. It has notions of talcum powder and some citrus and mineral notes with less tropical notes. The style is fresh with good acidity. Sixty percent of the grapes are now from Altamira, a profile that has been growing and might grow even more in the future. Nice balance in the palate. 324,000 bottles produced."

    "Quite a citric torrontes that has some passion fruit and lychee notes, too. There's a great interplay of fruit, yeasty character (this gives just a hint of creaminess) and crisp acidity. Quite a long, mineral finish. 50% Uco Valley and 50% Cafayate. Drink now. Screw cap."
