The wine is bright yellow with green edges. It has subtle and layered aromas of apple,
grapefruit, melon and honeysuckle. The taste is floral and fresh with mineral notes.
The finish is long, yet crisp.
A blend of Torrontés and Riesling, Amalaya Blanco is an exquisite representation of the unique weather and soil conditions in Argentina’s Northern Calchaquí Valley that also honors the heritage of the native Calchaquí people.
|Robert Parker: The 2012 Amalaya Blanco is a blend of 95% Torrontes and 5% Riesling. It has an obvious, generous peach and nectarine-scented bouquet that is smudged, but yet you fall for its charms. The palate is fresh and peachy with touches of lemongrass and stone fruit. It falls away a little at the finish, but it is cohesive, fresh and focused. Drink now-2014.

al fresco dining with fruity salads, Niçoise Salad and fresh, delicate fish like trout and
petrale soul, prawns and scallops
