Winemaker Notes

Brilliant ruby color with violet edges. Strawberries, raspberries and ripe fruit with touch of pepper and spices aromas. In mouth, flavors of red fruit, spice and hints of vanilla from aging in French oak. Round, soft tannins lead to a delicate, lingering finish. Mozzarella pie, potato omelette, meat baked with roasted vegetables, dried pasta with ragu, potato and meat pie, pizza, dark chocolate.

Critical Acclaim

TA 91
Tim Atkin

Amalaya sources this wine from its Finca Las Mercedes in the Calchaqui Valleys, combining Malbec with 7.5% Tannat and 2.5% Petit Verdot. Richly coloured, juicy and aromatic, with just a touch of oak and supple, caressing tannins.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Herbal black fruit aromas are touched up by notes of earthy spice and cured meat. A prodding palate is both solid and tannic, while this Salta Malbec tastes of blackberry, dark plum, herbs and spices. A lush finish is equally stout, and overall you won’t find much fault in this. Hess Family Wine Estates.

RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The grapey and juicy 2018 Malbec was a good representation of the varietal in the northern region of Salta, with intense aromas and pungent flavors. It's approachable and has very fine tannins, a dry finish and a nice texture. In reality, it also contains 10% Tannat and 5% Petit Verdot, but it can still be called Malbec. 695,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2018.

Amalaya, South America
Amalaya is an exquisite representation of the unique weather and soil conditions in Argentina's Northern Calchaqui Valley that also honors the heritage of the indigenous Calchaqui people. The name Amalaya is rooted in the beliefs of the Calchaqui to keep the gods of nature happy and to strive for an equilibrium of forces to assure sustainability over time. The most worshiped goddess is “Pachamama,” or "Mother Earth," who presides over planting and harvesting. The Calchaqui created many rituals and ceremonies to please Pachamama, and would ask the goddess for a miracle. This "hope for a miracle" is called "Amalaya" in the popular indigenous language and is symbolized by the holistic spiral. To respect Pachamama, the winemakers of Amalaya treat all their vineyards sustainably.
