From Bodega Amalaya:
Tasting notes, Malbec vintage 2021:
Malbec crafted with high altitude organic grapes from Fincas Las Mercedes with outstanding contributions of Tannat and Petit Verdot. This fresh Malbec with soft tannins is truly packed with all the magical high vibrations of this desert oasis. Brilliant ruby colour with violet edges. Strawberries, raspberries and ripe fruit with touch of pepper and spices aromas and elegant floral notes. In mouth, flavours of red fruit, spice and hints of vanilla from aging in French oak. Very nice freshness. Round, soft tannins lead to a delicate, lingering finish.
