After Chardonnay, Torrontés is Argentina's other white. This one is light and semisweet, with nice acids, a pretty floral bouquet and simple but clean melon, kiwi and lychee flavors. Once the white grape of 16th-century Spanish missionaries, Torrontés has adapted well to Argentina, just about the only place it's grown these days.
