From the bottle:
In Salta’s high desert, Amalaya vineyards begin a mile above sea level far above the Colchaqui Valley floor. For centuries, farmers made offerings in hope for a miracle – as Amalaya translates in the local language – for a bountiful harvest. Extreme conditions stress our sustainably farmed vines, delivering crisp, intensely flavored fruit of uncommon depth. Riesling supports the exotic flavors of Torrontés in this aromatic, dry white blend. Golden in color, citrus notes and hints of flinty minerals are showcased in this refreshing wine.
The 2015 Amalaya Blanco begins with a pleasant aroma full of lemon, lime and plenty of pretty floral notes. Taking a sip shows this to be a fresh, tasty wine with some zip to it. Filled with lots of sweet and juicy tart fruit (lime, lemon and grapefruit mainly) and good acidity, it’s not overly complex but it sure is refreshing. It ends with pretty good length, a bit of minerality and lots of lingering apricot and grapefruit flavors.
