I was a fan of this wine before I ever visited Susana Balbo's Dominos del Plato winery in Mendoza and I continue to be so - especially now that the price has come down a bit.
It is a highly perfumed wine that exudes lime oil, tangerine peel, tropical flowers and exotic spice, green melon and starfruit aromas. It has impressive concentration a sensuous texture and practically vibrates with taut citrus, sweet spice and rich fruit flavours. The finish is racy and persistent.
Pair with spicy crab cakes, tofu in coconut curry or Moroccan spiced pumpkin cous cous.
