Clean rich fruity nose, nice texture of fruit, very bright and tropical.
Fruity dark berries and cream, richer and warmer style, quite textural but out of balance.
Smoky cooked fruit, oaky dominance and hidden fruit, broad and heavy yet soft, achieves balance somehow, big and bold.

Floral citrus aromas, good freshness, very spicy, not heavy or cloying.

Funny how hindsight is always 20/20, but Salta was a very expensive detour to make. Firstly the rental car here was the most expensive I’ve experienced at $100+ per day, plus a navigator. Then you factor in the three hours each way from Salta, and the three hours each way to Colome, and that adds up to a fair amount of fuel for two days. Then on the way back from Colome on the previous day I had a blow-out without realising on the gravel highway, and subsequently damaged the wheel, which cost me $220 damages. When you add on accommodation and food, I ended up spending about $500 for two days, well over the $100 per day budget I have set myself. Was it worth the effort and expense? We shall see…
