Winemaker Notes

This is a glittering deep red wine, with purple tinges. It offers fruity aromas, resembling cherries and raspberries, and a subtle vanilla scent coming from barrel aging. A spicy, intense and sweeping wine, easy to drink, but yet with a long persistent finish. Tannins are mild and round. This wine is ready to be enjoyed. Ideally paired with red meat, pasta with tomato sauce and cheese.

Blend: 55% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 5% Tannat, 5% Bonarda

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator
Exotic, but pure, with delicious fig, currant paste, hoisin sauce and spiced hot chocolate notes. Long finish has nicely buried acidity, delivering lingering graphite and mineral hints. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Tannat and Bonarda.

Amalaya
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.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
