From a global wine bottler named Xavier Flouret, this Torrontés is a full-fruited, oily specimen. The nose boasts lychee, perfume and acacia, while the palate pumps out melon and apple flavors. Big it is; precise it's not. But it's rewarding. “Flaca” may mean skinny in Spanish, but this wine is far from that.
