More information on wine critics and ratings

Intense gold in colour with green tones, this wine has a bright floral nose with the citrus aroma of grapefruit and a hint of spice. In the mouth it is fresh and well structured with a crisp finish.

 Elegant and fruity with tropical notes to the fore.

Not only is it the oldest winery in Argentina, but also has the world’s highest vineyard. Located in the Upper Calchaquí Valleys in Salta in the far north of Argentina, the winery is thought to have been founded by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolás Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar. History of Bodega Colome In 1854, his daughter Ascensión, who was married to José Benjamín Dávalos, brought the first French pre-phylloxera Malbec and Cabernet… Read more

Here is the Salta mountain freshness! A really enticing combination of melon, floral and a wide spectrum of delicate citrus aromas. I love the balance of juicy fruit and crisp acidity that gives the bold, long finish a lot of life.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2018)
The citrusy 2018 Estate Torrontés has to be one of the finest representations of the variety in the high-altitude vineyards of Salta. There are some grapey notes reminiscent of Moscatel pulp, and the palate is vibrant, with clean flavors and balancing acidity. 120,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2018.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2018)
This rich, concentrated torrontés grows at 5,577 feet above sea level, where 30- to 60-year-old vines deliver fruit with herbal notes recalling aloe and desert shrubs. There’s shape and detail to its ripe, round citrus flavors, a match for a spinach-and-cheese pie. Best Buy

Tim Atkin (TA) : 91 Points (2018)
Thibault Delmotte sources his Torrontés from Cafayate and from the Colomé estate, such are the volumes required these days. Subtle, floral and refined with graceful aromatics of white flowers and citrus and a tangy finish.

Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2017)
A benchmark Torrontés with an intense, perfumed nose followed by a balanced palate that's full of concentrated ripe fruit and freshness. Zesty notes of grapefruit are apparent, combining with subtle floral hints and crisp citric acidity to create a very fine example, which emphasises how special Calchaquí is for this variety.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2015)
Mar 2016 - Very pale, bright color. Aromas of peach, mirabelle, flowers and wild herbs. Juicy, savory, minty wine with lovely saline lift and intensity to its citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Brisk acidity draws out the tactile, bright finish.-- Stephen Tanzer

Wine Spectator (WS) : 88 Points (2015)
Offers minerally notes to the green apple and ripe lime flavors, with plenty of floral accents. White pepper details show on the well-structured finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 87 Points (2015)
Powdery white-fruit aromas blend with notes of vanilla, lees and briny saline water. This feels fresh and lightly citrusy. Powdery, yeasty melon and tropical fruit flavors finish with notes of lychee and citrus pith.

Vina Cobos Bramare Malbec Valle de Uco 2017
Red fruit, cassis and smoke on the nose. Luscious plum, blackberry and mocha on the palate with hints of oak and leather. The high altitude of the vineyard site ensures fresh and ample acidity to make this a great partner for food, especially meat. It is smooth and complex with elegant tannins. A must-try wine!
