Mendoza, Argentina

Familia Zuccardi 500 ml. bottle
9.5% alcohol
Medium gold color with clarity. Nose hints of apple juice and peach juice. Flavors suggest a fruit compote including those fruits and a touch of honey. Retains some crispness that blocks any cloying tendency.

With its low alcohol and pleasant taste when chilled, this is an attractive summer after-dinner drink or accompaniment to a peach, apricot, or apple dessert. If I buy more, i would like to pair it with peach cobbler.

Sounds nice. I can imagine a Torrontes making a nice, light, sweet wine.

Yes, something like a Riesling Spatlese with the stone fruit element and low alcohol.

Sounds interesting. I'm going to have to look for that one.
