Located in the Cafayate Valley’s rugged terrain, tucked into the Andean foothills, all of their sustainably harvested wines are crafted from 1500 acres of high-altitude estate grapes. Their Cuma line takes environmentally friendly farming and processing a step further with certified organic status. Cuma means pure and clean in the Aymara language, the pre-Incan ancestral inhabitants of the area. These wines are meant to be enjoyed youthful and fresh, with vibrant fruit and bracing acidity preserved with time in stainless steel. Bright lifted lime, white blossoms and perfume jump out of the glass. Racy lime peel acidity leads a palate of jasmine, white peach, tea and musky papaya. There is a lot going on in this refreshing and jubilant Torrontes, and it will easily lift you out of the rainy January blues (just focus on the sunshiny label). Pour with a Thai Curry with spot praws, coconut milk and basmati rice.88 Points*January DRINKs will focus on budget-friendly selections, all ringing in under $17.
