Does it have a future in the U.S.?
July 8, 2009
t will never, ever usurp Chardonnay. Nor will it surpass Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, or even Viognier or Gewürztraminer. On the other hand, Torrontes may some day gain a foothold here because it’s easier to pronounce than the latter two varietals, it possesses similar sexy aromatics, and best of all, it can surprisingly belie the nose and finish dry on the palate. And its fruit profile makes for some of the most delicious wine in the world.
