Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts James Suckling April 2018
A vibrant, but well-balanced dry white with tons of fresh fruit salad aromas and a hint of floral honey. A crisp, salty, mineral finish. A great food wine! A blend of torrontes and riesling. Drink now. Screw cap.

Winemaker Notes

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.
Shiny gold very limpid color. Citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon skins dominate the nose. In mouth, delicate and silky yet fresh and crisp with good acidity and a distinctive mineral note.
