2012 Anko Torrontés Cafayate Valley Salta

SKU #1153705

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."

Beautiful salinity to this wine with jasmine and lime blossom aromas. Great flavors of lemon verbena, passion fruit and satsuma oranges persist on the palate. Beautiful acid balance keeps it focused and never cloying. Hands down my favorite Torrontes on the market. Try it with Indian food!

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
