Amalaya Malbec

Calchaqui Valley, Salta

For centuries, farmers made offerings in hope for a miracle - as Amalaya translates in the local language - for a bountiful harvest. It is located at 5,900 feet above sea level, in the Calchaquí Valley, northwest of Argentina. The region stands out as one of The Highest Vineyards In The World, characterized by its dry climate with no more than 150 mm annual rainfall, with significant thermal amplitude; rocky and sandy soil.

Vintage 2019 Varietals Malbec 85% - Tannat 10% - Petit Verdot 5% Ageing 8 months in French Oak barrels, only 25% of the wine Bottling date December 2019 Winemaker Jorge Noguera

Alc. 14% Total Acidity 5,4 g/l pH 3,71 Residual Sugar 3,6 g/l

This wine is made with grapes from Las Mercedes Estate, sandy soil and very poor in organic matter. Mechanical harvest and aging in barrels of 25% of the wine with contributions from Tannat and Petit Verdot. Vineyards Location Finca Las Mercedes, Calchaquí Valley Harvest February-March 2019

    "85% Malbec, with Tannat and Petit Verdot at 1,800 m. A less-expensive sister brand to Colomé founded in 2010. Polished and sweet. Admirably light bottle. Without the drama of some high-altitude wines but well made and pleasing."

    "The Amalaya Malbec is blended with 10% Tannat and 5% Petit Verdot, as it has been for the last three vintages. Made with organic grapes from the Finca Las Mercedes, this has damson and blackberry fruit, some vanilla spice from oak staves and good texture. 2021-25"

    "A dusty, chewy red with plenty of tannins and blackberry and smoky flavor. It’s full-bodied and very flavorful. Drink or hold. Screw cap."

    "A bold, fruit-driven malbec with a lot of blueberry and forest-berry aromas and full, soft tannins that keep the generous body in check. Quite polished finish. Screw cap."

    "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"
