Though we’ve already been feeling pretty lucky to be in the know about Bodega DiamAndes‘ luscious Gran Reserva–an incredible, Argentine Terroir wine, we suddenly are feeling a little bit luckier. Only recently released in the United States (the Gran Reserva made its US launch in January 2011), The Uco Valley-based DiamAndes is already releasing three more varietals to warm up the chilly evenings that are already upon us.
You can already be on the lookout for a 2010 Malbec, Chardonnay and Viognier that will live up to the high integrity we have already come to admire about the Bodega DiamAndes. And how could we not? These single varietal wines are hand-picked on the vineyards, yielding the deep authentic flavors and rich characteristics that embody what we adore about South American wines.
The “round and generously fruity” Malbec, the “rich yet fresh” Chardonnay, the “powerfully aromatic and brightly fruity” Viognier—the three wines each express the vital qualities of their grapes, making them quite distinct from the Gran Reserva (which is a Malbec/Cabernet blend that is aged 24 months), but like the Reserva, have the distinct “DiamAndes touch.”
The bottles have a suggested retail price of $20, making it a wonderfully affordable option for consumers.
