Amancaya Reserve Red Blend 2017 - 750ml
93 Points James Suckling
"At once ripe with plenty of cassis, blackberry and blueberry, but also delicate herbal notes, this has a rather complex and delicate nose. Quite a sleek, elegant wine for Mendoza with fine tannins and nice freshness, carrying the long, focused finish...Drink or hold."
Like CARO, the grapes come from the vineyards of Vistalba, La Consulta, Agrelo, Tupungato and Tunuyan (which are all over 30 years old and situated at an altitude between 2,625 and 4,593 feet). The meticulous selection takes place in the vineyards of the Catena family as well as in the vineyards of producers with the greatest terroirs of Mendoza.
The harvests took place from March 4 to April 22. The grapes were picked by hand and then sorted, destemmed and crushed before fermentation. Maceration was conducted in the traditional way, with smooth pumping overs to ensure gentle extraction. Ageing took place for 12 months, 50% in French oak barrels and 50% in concrete vats.
Deep ruby color. Intense aromas of white flowers, red cherries and figs. Juicy and complex with hints of cloves and other spices. This well-balanced wine is an elegant expression of the blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Adult signature will be required at time of delivery.
$50 minimum order.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
