I had a nice glass of the 09 Crios Torrontes with my macaroni and cheese dinner last night. Torrontes is a native argentinian grape. The Crios was very floral and tasted a lot like a viognier. I liked it very much and it paired quite nicely with cheesy richness of the mac n cheese. I'm not sure I could drink more than a couple of glasses given the sweetness, but it was definitely very good, and a refreshing change from the usual Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. The bottle was about $10 at Costco. I've tried other Crios wines before, including the Malbec and Syrah. They are always quite good, very drinkable and good values around $10.
