Bodegas Caro Amancaya 2015
The idea of forming a partnership between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family was born in 1999. 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 Bodegas Caro winery, in the heart of Mendoza, has been producing the wines since the 2003 vintage. Amancaya, like its older brother, presents a harmonious balance between the Argentine and Bordeaux styles. The wine is more fruity due to the higher percentage of Malbec and shorter aging. The word AMANCAYA is the native Indian name of a flower found at high altitudes in the Andes in the Mendoza area.
