92/100 – Silver Medal – Decanter World Wine Awards 2024
92/100 James Suckling

Back in the Club Wine Cellar is a truly delicious white Torrontés from Bodega Colomé, the oldest winery in Argentina. It is superb and has just won 92/100 and Silver Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards. The Decanter judges noted: ‘Fragrant and vibrant, showing classic aromas of white fruits and flowers on the nose. Citrusy palate, with a persistent finish.’

On the nose, and on first taste, Colomé is like a walk in a garden of roses and orange blossoms. Lively, floral, complex and with a long, savoury finish, it is a gorgeous wine, alone or with food—it is excellent with poached salmon or prawns and mayonnaise, oysters, salads and ceviche for example. And for afternoon tea with salmon and cucumber sandwiches, it’s a delight!

James Suckling, the international wine critic, also awarded it a huge 92 points when he tasted the wine, writing: ‘Attractive tropical character here with mango, apricot, peach pit, honeysuckle and spice. Medium-bodied, textured and tense with vivid fruit character and a tannin presence. Very attractive.’

Bodega Colomé has a long pedigree. Established in 1831 in the Upper Calchaquí Valley in Salta, in the far north of Argentina by the Spanish Governor of Salta, Nicolás Severo de Isasmendi y Echalar, it is not only the oldest winery in Argentina, at 6,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level it is the world’s highest vineyard. Tanzer called it, ‘A lot of wine for the gentle price’ and the Club Tasting Panel agree, advising Members to snap it up now, drink a case or two and keep the rest for next year, particularly at the Club’s advantageous price to Members.
