Technical notes
Amalaya means "hope for a miracle" in the native language of the Calchaqui valley indigenous people. This high altitude wine from Argentina's northwest wine capital Cafayate, captures the spirit of a long tradition of harvesting the land and giving thanks to mother Earth or "Pachamama". The valley's unique soil and microclimate 5,580 Feet above sealevel allows for low yielding vineyards which produce high quality, densely colored grapes. The dominant aromas of Amalaya Malbec blend are cherry and boysenberry with nuances of flowers and white pepper, while the palate is full with hints of vanilla. The finish is persistent with soft tannins making the wine approachable for any occasion and most foods.
