On the view it has a bright pink salmon color. On the nose, a very subtle floral attack of orange blossoms that come from Torrontés and notes of cherry and strawberry typical of Malbec. On the palate, it has a refreshing and silky entry, very fruity, medium volume preserving freshness and the touch of Torrontés can be subtly perceived at the end of the mouth. It has a fresh and elegant persistence.
For centuries, farmers made offerings with the Hope for a Miracle - as Amalaya is translated in the indigenous language - for a bountiful harvest.
The grapes come from the Calchaquíes Valleys from vineyards planted at 1800 meters above sea level in northwestern Argentina. The region stands out for being one of the highest in the world and is also characterized by its dry climate with rainfall of no more than 150 mm per year, with significant thermal amplitude; poor, rocky, and sandy soils.
