Amalaya, 'Torrontés Riesling', 2020, Salta, Argentina


This trophy winning Torrontés and Riesling blend white wine is dry, refreshing and silky on the palate. Full of life, with good citrus, blossom, and grapefruit aromas. Lovely touches of tropical fruits too. An excellent white wine for something a bit different at an everyday price point. Very well made and refreshing.

Superb with white fish, salads, and light nibbles.

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.
