Today, we are excited to introduce our Online Weekly Special program. We will reveal the wine selection on Fridays early afternoon. The feature will be available for online only ordering until the following Monday at noon while supplies last. The wines purchased during this period will be available for pickup or delivery on the following Wednesday afternoon.

You can purchase minimum one bottle or cases** as you wish. This program is strictly online and does not apply to store walk-ins. The selections will be based on high quality, true varietal representation and a great price point. Note this weekly selection is an online only promotion.

As the world comes to grips with the limitations from Covid, we will do free delivery for any purchase of $50 or more within Edmonton city limits.

Our first selection is the 2019 Bodegas Colome Amalaya Malbec (Calchaqui, Argentina) – Regular Price – $21.49, Sale Price – $17.00

**no other discount applicable.

Amalaya means “hope for a miracle” in Argentina’s native indigenous dialect. The wines are an exquisite representation of the unique weather and desert conditions in northwest Argentinas Cafayate Valley situated high – 200 miles from the border of Bolivia. The plantings are in high elevation (over 5000 feet above sea level), one of the highest around which allows for ripe grape-growing from the intense sun during the daytime and cool nights which results in concentrated fruit expression with bright acidity, a lingering mouthfeel and very fine balance.

Grapes are hand-harvested in small 30-pound boxes and hand-sorted at the winery. A four-day cold maceration adds colour, followed by an extended maceration in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. Secondary malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur in stainless steel prior to aging for 10 months, with 40% of the wine in once-used French oak barrels prior to fining and bottling. Fining occurs using egg whites from the farm at Amalaya.

This wine got huge scores from the Decanter Magazine, it is a sure-fire winner for everyday drinking with or without food. Also a great Christmas gift idea at over 20% off. Don’t miss it. Deadline for ordering is Monday at noon.
