Amancaya, like its older brother, presents a harmonious balance between the Argentine and Bordeaux styles. The wine is more fruity due to the higher percentage of Malbec and shorter ageing. The word AMANCAYA is the native Indian name of a flower found at high altitudes in the Andes in the Mendoza area.
These Glenrowan reds are more cultured than they once were, but retain honest regional style. Jammy berries, warm spice and a slight rustic edge mark a smooth, medium-full wine, with drying tannins behind.
Harvested at optimum maturity from low-yielding vineyards, Blass Noir Chardonnay displays an enticing bouquet of white peach and juicy stone fruits with notes of melon skin and well integrated oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied with flavours of melon and peach following through from the nose. Fine and elegant, with plenty of flavour, a rich, creamy texture, subtle oak to support and complex the fruit, and a long, balanced finish.
