Bodega Colomé Estate Salta Torrontés 2022: best price for this special, delicious summer white from the oldest winery in Argentina: lively, floral, complex and with a long, savoury finish: case of 12 bottles delivered


Back in the Club Wine Cellar is a truly delicious white Torrontés from Bodega Colomé, the oldest winery in Argentina. It is superb—lively, floral, complex and with a long, savoury finish, it is a gorgeous wine, alone or with fine food—excellent with poached salmon or prawns and mayonnaise, oysters, salads and ceviche for example. It is an award-winning wine and this, the 2022 vintage, is equally impressive and expected to garner another batch of awards in the new contests.

On the nose, and on first taste, Colomé is like a walk in a garden of roses and orange blossoms. Stephen Tanzer, the international wine critic known for his taste for finesse, awarded it a huge 90 points when he tasted the wine, writing: ‘Lovely floral lift to the aromas of mandarin orange, minerals, wild herbs and anise. Tactile, sappy and uncompromisingly dry, with a saline nuance to the complex flavors of citrus peel, herbs and rose petal. Finishes savoury and long.’

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.
