Overview of the Wine
The Bodega DiamAndes is a single estate nestled in the foothills of the Andes Mountain, at an altitude of 1,100 meters. The vineyard is located in the heart of the Uco valley, one of the best quality vineyard areas in. Bodega DiamAndes has gained international recognition across the world, and is increasingly appreciated for its excellent quality and value for money. The fabulous terroir and the ideal climate, combined with expertise and experience, has resulted in the outstandingly long-living wines.
In 2005, the Bonnie family, owner of the renowned Château Malartic-Lagraviere (Grand Cru Classe de Graves) and of the Château Gazin Rocquencourt (Pessac-Léognan), decided to leave France in search for new horizons in the world of wine. It all began with the acquisition, along with their partners, of a single 130-hectares (321 acres) block of land in the heart of the Uco Valley, to the south of the city of Mendoza. That is where Bodega DiamAndes was born, as a member of the prestigious Clos de los Siete group. The winery’s architectural design blends harmoniously into the stunning Andean scenery. In this context, the winemaking process has taken place under exceptional conditions since the 2007 vintage.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Bodega DiamAndes Perlita Malbec-Syrah 2018 is an attractive and bright violet color, with aromas of plum and dark berries. In the palate is fruity, silky and velvety, medium-bodied with refined tannins and a flavorful finish.
Pair this wine with wild bird game, or red or grilled meats.
89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Perlita Malbec Syrah is a fresh and fruit-driven blend of two grapes that I think work well together but are not often used together. In this case, the 80% Malbec and 20% Syrah fermented at a controlled temperature to keep the fruit and matured in used barriques for nine months. It's not ultra complex, but it's clean, balanced and fruit-driven, with a medium-bodied palate, medium ripeness and fine tannins that make it very pleasant and easy to drink.
