Harvest Note
2018 harvest in Salta was marked by cold weather at the beginning and end of the growing season which caused a reduction in yields. Summer was cool and cloudy, with low rain. This delayed the ripening process and kept freshness in the fruit. In Cafayate, the conditions were generally warmer, but also quite dry. It was a fine harvest in terms of quality and quantity. The result was healty fruit that delivered wines with intense aromas and firm acidity.
Tasting Note
Bright yellow color with silver hues. Delicate floral aroma with hints of white fruit. In the mouth, it is open and round. Its freshness and vivacity enhance the senses.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with spicy food, such as curries. Fresh fish and shelfish. Salads and fried snacks, like calamari or onion rings.
