torrontes.

argentina, you fill my life with so many good things. steak, wine, soccer, boys with mullets. and now this.

aromatic liquid green, torrontes is everything i love about wine.  it’s fruity but not sweet,  rich but not cloying, refreshing but not watery.  it’s summer wine. last night i sat at the window and drank a glass, watching a thunderstorm roll in.

trapiche makes a tart and tasty $8 bottle.  i’ve bought so many that the cute old ethiopian men who work at my corner store are beginning to raise their eyebrows. maybe i’ll invest in a case, but then i’m not sure how i’d resist the urge to fill my bathtub with the stuff and just swim around in it. ah, summer.

  1. Hi Marcella, this is Heidi logging in on Julia’s computer. Torrontes sounds delicious, especially for summer, even our cool version of the hot season. I wonder if Trader Joe carries it? A case would be good and reduce some of the trips to that store!
    Love, Heidi

  2. I want to swan dive off a tiny diving board into this glass and do an elegant back stroke. And then drink the shit out of it.
