Amalaya, Calchaquí Valley Malbec, 2019, Salta, Argentina


Deep ruby red in colour with black fruit aromas and touches of spice and chocolate. A little flutter of smokiness too. Well structured, fresh and fruity on the palate with soft, rounded tannins and a long velvety finish. One of our best sellers.

Amalaya translates as ‘hope for a miracle’ in the indigenous language of the now extinct tribe, the Calchaquí. The winery is situated in Cafayate, Calchaquí Valley in Salta in the far north of Argentina at nearly 1,828 metres above sea level. It is a part of the Hess Family Estates and is run with the same dedication to quality, sustainability and social responsibility as the other Hess Estates.
