Three summertime whites

Fresh and aromatic; straight forward and agile; ideal to accompany with salads and light meals on a warm summer night.

2010 Finca Las Moras Viognier (ARS22)

An amazing wine from Tulum Valley, San Juan. Viogner’s features can be perfectly seen in this wine. It displays golden colors with soft green hues and intense aromas of white fruits such as pear, orange blossoms and a touch of herbs. Of good acidity and well-structured, this white has a slight, but very pleasant bitter taste and a fruity and long finish. It is the perfect match for appetizers, especially cheese.

2011 Amalaya Blanco (ARS40)

Last year, Amalaya, the new winery of the Hess Group, surprised us with this blend of Torrontés and Riesling. Although the percentage of Riesling is quite low, 10%, it gives the wine a unique twist. It displays golden-yellow colors. In the nose, it is a soft Torrontés, not so wild, with pleasant floral and citric presence. In the mouth it stands out for its freshness. The Riesling rounds up the typical bitter finish of the Torrontés. Amalaya Blanco is a good partner for spicy empanadas (meat pies).

2010 Ruca Malen Chardonnay (ARS62)

It shows yellow colors with golden hues. In the nose, its aging in oak is perceived with clear smoky notes of dried fruits, butter, and vanilla that blend with Chardonnay’s classic white fruit. In the mouth it is fresh and, at the same time, dense, greasy, and long. This wine calls for a paring with more fancy and heavy meals such as sweetbread with green onion, salmon and beacon rolls or a fresh octopus carpaccio.
