The word "Amalayya" in the language of the indigenous Indians Kalchaki means "belief in a miracle," and has a symbolic designation as a circle. "Amalayya" - fine wine, showing a great terroir Calchaquí Valleys, with its unique climate for growing grapes. The valley is located in the Northwestern region of Argentina, in the eastern foothills of the Andes, at an altitude of about 5,500 feet above sea level. Intense sun during the day and cool nights help grow grapes with concentrated flavors and good acidity.
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.
