Last Sunday in The Times...The 2006

Dining & Wine

Wine Under $20

Dry, Delectable and Memorable


Published: October 8, 2006

Dominio del Plata’s 2006 Crios de Susana Balbo is a brilliant example of torrontés, Argentina’s principal dry white. Its floral scents bring to mind a perfume shop. Its citric flavors are delectable.

Ms. Balbo’s torrontés incorporates characteristics of young, light riesling, alberiño and viognier. Given a quick chill, it is a show-stopping aperitif. Its spiciness can enhance Thai, Chinese, Korean and Japanese dishes. $14.99 in Texas. Cheers - Ali

For all you white wine drinkers, if you haven't tried a Torrontes yet, you owe yourself a favor. This is one of the best little secrets around. You can buy the Crios wines at Cost Plus World Market for $12.99.
