Crios Torrontes 2012

Crios Torrontes.jpg

Enclosure: screw cap

SPC: +719748

With summer just around the corner, it's the right time to expand our white wine repertoire and try a new grape from Argentina called Torrontes. The Crios Torrontes is nicely balanced with aromas and flavours of flowers, peach, honeydew melon and citrus. A refreshing patio sipper, it pairs well with warm weather foods such as ceviche, smoked salmon, coconut curries and seabass.

Torrontes Ice Cream

(courtesy of Ursula Hess at Colome Winery)


8 large egg yolks

2 cups sugar

2 1/2 cups Torrontes wine

2 cups heavy cream


In a medium stainless steel bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar and wine until blended. Place the bowl over a saucepan with 2 inches (5 cm) of simmering water and whisk until the mixture has thickened and doubled in volume. 10 - 12 mins


Remove from heat, let cool and cover with plastic wrap pressed directly onto the surface of the custard. Refrigerate overnight.


In a deep bowl, beat the cream to form soft peaks and fold into the chilled custard. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.
