“A wide range of mint, damson plum, crushed blackberry and mesquite notes are offset by tangy acidity and a long, mineral tinged finish. Silky. Drink now.” - 89 PTS – Wine Spectator for the 2009 Vintage

Winemaker’s Notes
The color is deep magenta with red hues. The aromas begin with a top note of roses and violets followed by a red fruit profile of cherries and strawberries with hints of white pepper. The flavors are similar, with exotic plum and berry wrapped in a sweet, wet clay, earthy background. The entry on the palate is smooth, moving to full bodied and silky with a persistent finish. Enjoy this wine with grilled meats including game, duck, red pasta sauces, hearty comfort foods, and a variety of mild and medium cheeses. Amalaya is an exquisite representation of the unique weather and soil conditions in Argentina’s Northern Calchaqui Valley that also honors the heritage of the native Calchaqui Indians. The Calchaqui Valley sits in the northwestern region of Argentina in the eastern foothills of the Andes mountain range at an altitude between 5,250 and 5,580 feet above sea level.

Producer
Where most saw nothing more than the rugged landscape of the high desert, Donald Hess saw the potential for great wines. Here, in Argentina’s Calchaqui Valley in the northwest province of Salta, the continuing commitment of Hess Family Estates is found in Amalaya, joining Bodega Colome as singular expressions of Calchaqui Valley, in the heart of Argentina’s greatest wine growing region. Among the indigenous people who have called the Calchaqui Valley home for centuries, Amalaya translates as Hope For a Miracle. From the sparse desert climate the miracle arrives with the flourishing of exceptionally flavorful and complex grapes which allow winemakers to craft wines of distinction, worthy of this special place. Amalaya’s new home features a modern winery and a trio of vineyards, each with distinct soils and micro-climates that produce compelling fruit, leading to exceptional wines. Each vintage, the winemakers craft wines featuring blends that capture the essence of Amalaya, including an Amalaya Tinto, an Amalaya Blanco and the Amalaya Gran Corte.
