Amalaya Gran Corte Malbec Cabernet Franc

Amalaya Gran Corte Malbec Cabernet Franc

Wine: Amalaya ‘Gran Corte’

Producer: Amalaya

Country: Argentina

Region: Salta / Calchaqui Valley

Vintage: 2017

Style: Red

Blend: Malbec 85%, Cabernet Franc 9%, Tannat 6%

ABV: 14.5%

Size: 75cl

Organic: NO

Biodynamic: NO

Vegan: YES

 

Notes: At almost 2000 metres above sea level, extreme conditions including minimal rainfall, very poor soils & strong daytime sunshine result in a powerful but elegant wine with black cherry, plum, spice & round tannins. 12 months oak prior to bottling.

 

Producer Info: The estate’s vineyards are located in Cafayate in the very heart of the Calchaquí Valley, distinguished for being the highest wine region in the world. The climate is very dry, with just 150 millimetres of rain in an average year & huge temperature fluctuations of around 20°C. The soils here are rocky, poor & sandy so the roots of the vines are forced to dig deep to find the vital nutrients & water they need, which results in fruit with hugely concentrated flavour.

Amalaya translates as ‘hope for a miracle’ in the indigenous language of the now extinct tribe, the Calchaquí. The winery is situated in Cafayate, Calchaquí Valley in Salta in the far north of Argentina at nearly 1,828 metres above sea level. It is a part of the Hess Family Estates and is run with the same dedication to quality, sustainability & social responsibility as the other Hess Estates. All of the Amalaya wines are fruit driven in style, with a finesse that unites them. These wines offer incredible value for their quality & truly reflect their ‘sense of place‘.
