Viñas Riojanas, "La Chaya" Torrontes
Origin: Riojana, Argentina
Producer's Notes: A notably aromatic wine with green melon and white peach aromas shining through. On the palate it is well balanced with an attractive citrus flavour and a crisp, lingering finish. This is a truly versatile wine for any season and any occasion. Great on its own or equally as good with grilled fish, slightly spiced Asian cuisine or mature goat's cheese.
The reference to La Chaya relates to an annual celebration, peculiar to La Rioja province, where local people dress up as devil’s and celebrate "La Pachamama" (Mother Earth) by throwing flour and water, dancing, eating and drinking lots of wine long into the night.
