    "I love the ultra young and fleshy 2020 Malbec that in reality contains 10% Tannat and 5% Petit Verdot. It's ripe without excess and was bottled after one-fourth of the volume spent eight months in oak barrels. So, the effect of the oak is not noticeable in the aromas or flavors, and the wine comes through as fruit-driven and juicy while still keeping the varietal profile. They produced no less than 720,000 bottles of this wine. It was bottled in September 2020."

    "A blend of Torrontés and Riesling (15%) from Cafayate, this white makes a statement at a very competitive price. Pale yellow in the glass. The nose suggests lime and orange blossom with hints of rose and tropical fruit. The acidity sticks to the gums as part of a sparky palate and good body. Well-defined floral aftertaste."

    "One of those wines that I’m always delighted to find on a restaurant wine list, this is a unique blend of Torrontés with 15% Riesling from Amalaya’s vineyards in Cafayate. Zesty, dry and seamlessly combined, it has appealing zip and precision, aromas of white flowers and a lime and orange peel finish. 2020-22"

    "This has attractive aromas of fresh lychees and peaches with tropical fruit and jasmine. The palate is a riot of juicy, fresh, vivid white peaches and melon. Drink now. Screw cap"
