2019 Amancaya, Malbec/Cabernet, Bodegas Caro, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite), Mendoza

Tasting Notes

The colour is a deep ruby with purple nuances. The nose is complex deep and broody with layered notes of cassis, cocoa, melted dark chocolate, salted caramel, figs with cinnamon, clove and bonfire. The palate unveils seductive aromas of black fruit with very well-integrated oak. This wine has great balance and an exceptional freshness. There's a restraint to the fruit that exudes sheer class. Well done DBR & Catena this is a really top notch wine.


Vineyard Information

What happens when two people, both focused on producing wine of the highest order but on different continents, get together and decide to make wine together? The idea of forming a partnership between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family was first mooted in 1998. Initial enthusiasm quickly became a concrete plan to produce a single wine that would combine French and Argentine cultures and the two signature grapes of each producer, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Catena family has produced wine for three generations. Consequently, it was able to draw on its vast knowledge of the high altitude terroirs of the Mendoza region as well as its passion for Malbec. DBR (Lafite) contributed its centuries-old skills in growing, vinifying and ageing great Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as its know-how in blending different grape varieties to produce one wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. Amancaya presents a harmonious balance between the Argentine and Bordeaux styles. A more fruity style coming from the higher percentage of Malbec and shorter ageing. The word AMANCAYA is the native Indian name of a flower of the Andes that you can find in the Mendoza area.
