Amalaya - Blanco, Salta 2017
A white wine from the brilliant Amalaya stable reveals an intriguing white wine blend of Torrontes (90%) and Riesling (10%) grapes. The winery is situated in the Calchaquí Valley of 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. All of the Amalaya wines are fruit driven in style, with a finesse that unites them. These wines offer incredible value for their quality and truly reflect their sense of place. The wine is pale golden in colour with greenish edges. Intense and complex on the nose with aromas of citrus, grapefruit, ripe stone fruit and a touch of minerality. On the palate this wine is medium bodied with a refreshing acidity, distinct mineral note and ripe fruit flavour.
