About Alamos Torrontes:
This fighter has a unique expression and has been
"called the country’s signature wine varietal."
Training included the development of lively citrus notes
and peach fruit, with a side workout involving jasmine
blossom and fresh herbs. This wine is light on its feet
with excellent balance. Be aware of crisp body blows.About Martin Codax Vinos Seleccionados Albarino:
This fighter has roots to the “13th century Galacian troubadour
whose romantic works are still sung and played today in the
Northwest of Spain.” Don’t worry, this gladiator doesn’t come
to the ring with a rose in the mouth (for you Mike Tyson Punchout fans).
Training included the development of bright fruit and subtle floral
aromas. Although doing crazy cardio, Albarino maintained its medium
body while having refreshing speed.
