Reviews of purchase "Amalaya", 2012, 1.5 L
Wine of deep ruby color with purple highlights.
The wine has a soft, complex flavor with hints of vanilla and spices, silky, rounded tannins and a long finish.
The elegant aroma of the wine is dominated by notes of red cherries, cassis and oak nuances.
Wine can be enjoyed in conjunction with roasted meat, game, duck, pasta with red sauce, a variety of light and medium-mature cheeses.
Grapes for wine production "Amalaya" harvested by hand in the March 30-pound boxes, deliver to the winery and sorted again by hand. After a 4-day cold maceration, berries are slow fermentation using yeast for 18-20 days and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Then 20% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 10 months.
