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.
Blass Noir Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from vineyards planted on the distinguished well-drained terra rossa soils of Coonawarra, ranging in age from 15 to over 30 years and known for growing complex, elegant, intensely flavoured fruit. Sourced mostly from vineyards to the north and south of the Coonawarra township, the blend also includes a batch from a vineyard to the east of Penola.
