Amancaya is the Quechua name of an endemic flower of the Andes found in the Mendoza area. Grapes are sourced from selected plots of old vines in Lujan de Cuyo just outside Mendoza, and also from Altamira, further South. In Lujan, soils are quite varied depending on how close vineyards are to the mountains or Mendoza River, and tend to form alluvial layers of loam, rock, and gravel. In Altamira, vineyards are planted at 1000m above sea level, on the ancient alluvial bed of the Tunuyan River.

Winemaker notes

2021: Deep velvety red color with intense ruby hues. Very fruity and fresh on the nose, followed by aromas of red fruit, strawberry and black currant. On the palate, the wine is long, well balanced and pleasant, with refined tannins. Displaying generous aromas of red berries.


James Suckling 93: Classy, cedary oak with incense and cigar box to the black cherries and blackberries. Juicy and generous on the palate with tight yet silky tannins. 69% malbec and 31% cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.

Decanter 92: Ruby-red in hue with purple highlights, the wine has a restrained, refined character featuring notes of forest berries, cherry jam, violets, blackberry, liquorice, and graphite. On the palate, it’s vibrant but balanced, with a medium body and polished, juicy tannins. Amancaya 2021 is a red blend – 69% Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon – for which Bodegas Caro has sourced grapes from Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Half of the blend was aged for 12 months in oak barrels. Ideal with lamb and other meats.
