Product description

Tasting Notes:

Deep crimson color. The nose presents aromas of red and black fruit, with redcurrants and plums, and a little mint and cedar. The bouquet fills out with notes of vanilla, spices and mocha from the French oak. On the palate, the tannic texture is pleasant and well balanced. The tannins are refined and gentle. There is a pleasant sensation of softness in the mouth. This is a deep, flavourful wine which can be drunk now but which will reveal more of its character in three to five years.

 

-Amancaya, like its older brother, presents a harmonious balance between the Argentine and Bordeaux styles. The wine is more fruity due to the higher percentage of Malbec and shorter ageing. The word AMANCAYA is the native Indian name of a flower found at high altitudes in the Andes in the Mendoza area. "The 2011 Amancaya Gran Reserva, their second wine named after a flower found in the Alpes mountains in Argentina, which aims at a feminine, elegant profile, is a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon and shows a classical profile of tobacco, cedar wood, balsam and perfectly ripe fruit. It has great balance and integration of fruit, oak and acidity, it has no edges and drinks beautifully now, but has the stuffing to last well. Drink 2014-2019."
