Wine information
Amalaya translates as ‘hope for a miracle’ in the indigenous language of the now extinct tribe, the Calchaquí. The winery, part of Hess Family Wine Estates, is situated in the Calchaquí Valley in Salta, in the far north of Argentina. At 1,828 metres above sea level, it is one of the highest vineyard areas in the world. This extreme region is characterized by its dry climate with no more than 150 mm of annual rainfall, significant thermal amplitude and rocky and sandy soil. This interesting white blend of Torrontés and Riesling is very pleasant indeed. Dry and aromatic with notes of peach, elderflower, lemongrass and white flowers. Delineated, mineral-driven and fresh, it is a poised beauty!

Robin says "This Blanco de Corte 2019 was a real discovery! It has all the flair of Torrontés but with the minerality and precision of Riesling. I love its floral tones and finesse. Surprisingly diverse, it could accompany a number of different plates. Well worth trying, particulary for wine drinkers who like aromatic whites."
