Amalaya Torrontes-Riesling 2016 - August 2017 Decanter review

The Amalaya wines offer incredible value for their quality and truly reflect their ‘sense of place‘. All of the Amalaya wines are fruit driven in style, with a finesse that unites them.

The Torrontes and Riesling grapes were both grown on the Finca Amalaya and Finca Las Mercedes vineyards. These are located in the Cafayate Valley in the very heart of the Calchaqui Valley, distinguished for being the highest wine region in the world. The climate here is very dry, with just 150mm of rain in an average year and a huge thermal amplitude of around 20°C. The soils here are rocky, poor and sandy so the roots of the vines are forced to dig deep to find the vital nutrients and water they need, which in turn results in a huge concentration of flavour within the fruit. The winery is also situated in Cafayate, Calchaquí Valley in Salta in the far north of Argentina at nearly 1,828 metres above sea level.

Amalaya translates to ‘hope for a miracle’ in the indigenous language of the now extinct tribe, the Calchaquí. The winery is situated in Cafayate, Calchaquí Valley in Salta in the far north of Argentina at nearly 1,828 metres above sea level. It is a part of the Hess Family Estates and is run with the same dedication to quality, sustainability and social responsibility as the other Hess Estates.

Intense gold in colour with tints of green. On the nose this wine is intense and complex with aromas of citrus and grapefruit typical of Torrontes. Delicate and silky on the palate with great freshness and crisp acidity on the distinctly mineral finish.

Casa Ferreirinha Planalto Douro Branco 2016 (1x 75cl)

The earlier 2015 vintage was awarded 87 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their June 2017 edition review of Douro Table Wines (see blue link below).  It is subjective, of course, but we judge the 2016 to be of at least a very similar quality based on the producer's data: the acidity is a little higher and the alcohol a little lower, yielding more freshness in a class of wine that can, to some, taste a little "hot".

Casa Ferreirinha, Planalto Branco 2015 - June 2017 Decanter review

This historic producer, founded in 1751, now have 520 hectares of vineyard in the Douro in all of its three sub-regions:  Lower Corgo, Upper Corgo and Douro Superior.  The winemaking is headed up by the talented Luis Sottomayor, he manages to restrain the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a freshness, allied to a wonderful depth and texture.

This excellent - and wonderful value - white blend (of new fewer than 7 different varietals!) comes from relatively high-altitude vineyards above the river Douro. The grapes were harvested by hand in the highlands and plateaus of the region and were selected for their balance between phenolic maturity and excellent freshness. 

Bright lemon in colour. On the nose, intense floral aromas stand out, as well as citrus fruits, tropical fruits, white stone fruits and light asparagus aromas. It has lively acidity which is well integrated on the palate. The finish is elegant and harmonious.

£8.70

Conde Villar Vinho Verde Branco 2016 (1x 75cl)

Bright and clear with a light citric colour; Some evident tropical aromas reminding of pineapple, mango and also citrines. Fruity blended with interesting floral notes. It presents itself with a soft minerality, very well balanced and medium structure.
