Cafayate (Provincia Salta)

Limpid straw-yellow.  Nose has strong pear and lychee notes that carry on to the palate. The palate is dry and savoury. Wine flavour and aroma persist in the glass and are constant across the bottle.

Tasted 9 April 1012
750 ml 14% alc v/v

92$ at Winery, Av Belgrano, Buenos Aires

Valle de Cafayate (Provincia Salta)

Limpid bright deep straw. Clean and concentrated nose of quince and pineapple, with similar on palate. Not botrytised. The dominant line of the palate is its sweetness, which nevertheless finishes well on account of adequate acid.

A very pleasing, clean and well made dessert wine. Good value for money.
