Lots of citrus peel and sage, but also something flinty. Great freshness is married to discreet creaminess on the palate in a really exciting wa. Then the minerals kick in at the long, racy finish. A blend of semillon, sauvignon blanc and torrontes fermented and matured in French oak. Drink now.
(for this blend Balbo uses the same Torrontés fruit that goes into the Signature Barrel Fermented Torrontés but ages it in second-use barrels; the Sémillon is done in concrete eggs and the Sauvignon Blanc in second-use barrels): Very pale color. Aromas of musky grapefruit pith and fresh herbs. Offers lovely texture and intensity, showing strong citrussy grapefruit and herb flavors complicated by intriguing salinity. Not a particularly fruity style but boasts excellent citric tension and finishes with terrific salty grip and excellent length. The Signature Torrontés is easier to drink while this cooler style is more powerful and cutting and needs to be served with food. This Sémillon, incidentally, boasts uncanny intensity, but Balbo notes that it's difficult to sell pure Sémillon. This is actually the white version of Balbo's Brioso red blend, but the word Brioso does not appear on the label in the domestic market. (92+ ST)
