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.

Deep ruby/purple in colour, with pronounced, ripe red cherries and mulberries on the nose with overtones of cedar and vanilla pod. Rich and rounded with intense flavours of juicy cherries and dark fruits with subtle sweet spice. The wine is complemented by a good length and balanced fine tannins.
