Amancaya is part of the Barone Lafite Rothchild’s international portfolio of wines; this is their Argentine project. Amancaya 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 name of a flower found at high altitudes in the Andes in the Mendoza area.
Deep ruby color. The nose is intense with notes of white flowers, red cherries and figs. The palate is 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.
