Calchaqui, Salta, Argentina
For centuries, farmers made offerings in hope for a miracle – as Amalaya translates in the local language – for a bountiful harvest. It is located at 5,900 feet above sea level, in the Calchaquí Valley, northwest of Argentina. The region stands out as one of The Highest Vineyards In The World, characterized by its dry climate with no more than 150 mm annual rainfall, with significant thermal amplitude; rocky and sandy soil.
This wine is made with grapes from San Isidro Estate, located at 1800 meters above sea level. Manual harvest and fermentation at very low temperatures.

This has attractive aromas of fresh lychees and peaches with tropical fruit and jasmine. The palate is a riot of juicy, fresh, vivid white peaches and melon. Drink now. Screw cap.
