Anko Torrontes Salta 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Luis Gutierrez (Wine Advocate): The 2016 Anko Torrontés is the only wine from Anko that is sourced from a different vineyard, in the zone of San Isidro in Cafayate Valley, from sandier, less stony soils, from an old parral. The nose is subtly perfumed, with some juicy Moscatel aromas and a citric twist. The palate shows good restraint, with a mouthfeel that is associated with granite with a faint saline touch; they later told me the vines are planted in a zone known as the shell valley, because many, many years ago, the valley was a sea and the soil is full of sea shell fossils. Amazing value and a textbook example of the variety. 10,000 bottles produced. Drink: 2016-2018. (Dec 2016)
