Amalaya Calchaquí Valley Torrontés/Riesling

Amalaya Calchaquí Valley Torrontés/Riesling

€18.95
The Torrontés and Riesling grapes were grown on the Finca San Isidoro vineyards. These are located in the Cafayate Valley in the very heart of the Calchaqui Valley, distinguished for being the highest wine region in the world. The climate here is very dry, with just 150mm of rain in an average year and a huge thermal amplitude of around 20°C. The soils here are rocky, poor, and sandy so the roots of the vines are forced to dig deep to find the vital nutrients and water they need, which in turn results in a huge concentration of flavor within the fruit. This wine is pale yellow in color with youthful highlights. On the nose, there are intense aromas of floral and citrus which are balanced with a touch of minerality. On the palate, it has a crisp acidity with a long, fruit-driven finish.

Description

Bodega Amalaya was born in 2010 in the high-altitude plains of the Calchaqui Valley in Salta, Argentina. It is the vision of Larissa and Christoph Ehrbar (wine pioneer Donald Hess’s successors).
They believed in the unique ’high-vibration’ qualities of Cafayate’s terroir and the ability to craft high-quality, fresh, vibrant and contemporary high-altitude wines.
