Argentina’s signature white Torrontés may not yet be as famous as its Malbec but “makes terrifically fragrant, perfumed, yet rich and fruity wines with crisp acidity” (Tom Cannavan). Using high grown grapes, Alma Andina soars with citrus freshness.
Salta is one of Argentina’s oldest wine regions, dating back to the Spanish conquest. It has the highest vineyards in the world, up to 3,000 metres above sea level. And the region is very dry, relying on irrigation from Andean snowmelt. Unsurprisingly, just 1% of the country’s wine is made here. However, Salta’s grapes have unique, very pure and intense flavours and this is what lured Aussie winemaker Steve McEwen half way round the world. Here he fell in love with the vistas, the Torrontés grape and future wife Viviana. This wine, crafted by Steve, has wonderfully fresh aromas of honeysuckle, spice and citrus fruits, and an exhilarating, crisp finish. It’s a refreshingly different apéritif and an inspired choice with spicy Eastern cuisine.
"Argentinian silver star. Lovely combination of flavours - top class wine. 5 Stars"
