The aromatic, vividly floral grape from Argentina has been made into a bubble? And Patagonia? The southern part of South America, at 39° Latitude South?Enough questions. Of course I had to try it.The Schroeder Family has been part of the rugged and mystical Patagonia landscape since 1927. In 2001, when starting their dream of winemaking, construction of the winery was halted unexpectedly when the remains of a 75 million year old “Titanosaur Aeolosaurus” was found – one of the largest dinosaur fossils ever discovered on Earth. The Schroeders named it “Saurus” and it now resides underground encased behind a glass wall watching over the barrels of wine.Deseado means loved – and it’s hard not to fall in love with this cutie. A fresh, sweet white peach and orange blossom nose leads to fine, foamy bubbles. Sweet, floral, orange, kiwi, spice and delicate tropical fruit flavours are in flight in the mouth, with juicy, mouthwatering acid. This would be lovely with brunch, or post dinner with marmalade tart or lemon meringue pie.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean)by Treve Ring, Online DRINK EditorNovember 7, 2010EATrecommendsFamilia Schroeder Deseado NVFloral Torrontés in a bubble?
