At 1800 meters above sea level, in the northwest of Argentina , is the Las Mercedes vineyard, nestled in the Valleys Calchaquíes (Province of Jump ). One of the highest areas in the winemaking world and owner of one of the most virgin land for farming.
The region is characterized by its dry climate with rains no greater than 150 mm per year, with significant thermal amplitude; poor, rocky and sandy soils.
From there, and as an experimental line of the Bodega Colomé, Amalaya is born. The idea was to find alternative varieties that accompany Malbec developing cut wines. The decision was linked to the great growth of these types of wines in the old world.
The philosophy of elaboration is that each wine is born in the vineyard thinking that it will be part of a cut. In this way, structured wines with fruity and spicy intensity are produced. Characteristics that are achieved with different cultural tasks in the vineyard, different harvesting points and differential winemaking techniques and technology. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks, cement basins and barrels depending on the wine you want to achieve.
Amalaya Gran Corte 2013, is composed of Malbec in 85%, Cabernet Franc by 10% and a powerful Tannat provides the remaining 5%.
It is a bright wine with a deep and penetrating ruby color. Aromas of red and black fruits with spicy notes, typical of the region and soft notes of vanilla , coming from its passage through barrel. On the palate, it is concentrated, complex and elegant, unctuous, fruity and round tannins, a long and delicate finish. Excellent structure and long persistence in the mouth.
Ideal for pairing with semi-hard cheeses , cold cuts, well seasoned meats, pasta with bolognese or a bitter chocolate .
For centuries, farmers made offerings with Hope for a Miracle — as Amalaya is translated into an indigenous language — for a rich harvest.
The miracle becomes revelation from the bowels of the Cafayate desert in a mystical and magical way to give us its vines of excellent quality.
