A blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Tannat, Amalaya is an exquisite representaion of the unique weather and soil condiions in Argenina’s Northern Calchaqui Valley that also honors the heritage of the naive Calchaqui people. The Calchaqui Valley sits in the northwestern region of Argenina, in the eastern foothills of the Andes mountain range at an alitude between 5,250 and 5,580 feet above sea level. The high alitude provides a unique growing climate for the sustainably-farmed vineyard, providing intense sun in the day and cool nights that help beter retain the acidity and concentrated fruit characterisics of the grapes.
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.
