Argentina

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Amancaya, like its older brother, presents a harmonious balance between the Argentine and Bordeaux styles. The wine is more fruity due to the higher percentage of Malbec and shorter ageing. The word AMANCAYA is the native Indian name of a flower found at high altitudes in the Andes in the Mendoza area.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The bouquet is loaded with sweet-smelling aromas of dark plum and blackberry. It feels intense, packed and pure in the mouth, with potent flavors of blackberry, baked plum and cassis. The finish feels mild and smooth, with a long, jammy, steady fade. A blend of 65% Malbec and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon.
