We are headed into Memorial Day weekend and what better to have for back porch sipping, beach lounging, and burger eating then not one but TWO wines under $10!
This week we are featuring TWO WOWs from…a ripe and juicy Malbec and a fresh and tasty Torrontes.
2013 Finca El Origen, Malbec
Uco Valley, Argentina
Wine Spectator Best Buy: “Ripe rich blueberry, with black currants, red currants and bramble-fruit ending with violets and nuances black pepper. This is a dark-fruited, smooth, delicious wine, that is complex and lively at the same time.”
2013 Finca El Origen, Torrontes
Torrontes is produced only in Argentina and has an incomparable flavor. It is found across all the winemaking regions of the country, from Salta to Río Negro, and is becoming established as an icon among Argentine white wines.
“A light yellow wine that occasionally has golden and green hues. Its aroma is reminiscent of roses, jasmine, and geraniums. In the mouth it is pure ripe peaches and nectarines, with touches of honey. The aromatics suggest a sweet wine but bright refreshing acidity lend a dry finish. Delicious!”
