Well, regular readers will recognise this wine as I have blogged about it before. That was when I was chatting with my friend on the state of our NHS.
We may indeed be thankful that Argentina defied the might of the IMF, unpegged its currency which initially devalued to 25% of its original US$ value and even today it is still hovering around the 33% mark, thereby averting major internal unrest. It may indeed be a good object lesson for Greece and perhaps soon enough, Spain, Italy and Portugal.
I won’t even go into Iceland.
For wine drinkers, that we can be enjoying such a wonderful white wine at a mere $8 in Central America or $12 in the US and £8 in the UK must be an object lesson in the need to keep your own sovereign currency. Do you think I would be writing this if it is £32: the white burgundy territory!
By all accounts, Argentina is doing very nicely, Mr IMF or is it Ms IMF now. Thank, but no thanks.
We have our Tango, our Malbec and now Torrontes.

Well, if you come across Crios, give it a go.
Peach, melon, citrus and full body for a wine with such fragrance and still dry and goes well with crab, shrimp and most Chinese dishes.
Last year alone over a quarter million cases were exported to the US alone.
I have tasted a few and Crios is by far the best.
