2012 Anko Torrontés Cafayate Valley Salta
This lush, aromatic 100% Torrontes comes from the shallow rocky soils of Cafayate, in Argentina's Salta region. It was all hand-harvested, fermented with native yeasts, and made in a perfumed, balanced style that is perfect for enjoying on its own or with a variety of food. From the winery: "We strive to achieve a terroir-driven Torrontés from Cafayate, Salta - a savory wine with minerals, white flowers, and citrus. Anko means 'high water' in the native Indian language of Salta, located in the northwest corner of Argentina. The vineyards are indeed an oasis amid the surrounding jagged, high desert landscape."
