On the south bank of the Mendoza River, at the foot of the Andes Mountains, Perdriel lies within the small town of Luján de Cuyo (one of only a few Controlled Designations of Origin). Here, you’ll find Amansado’s La Elsi Estate. With some of the oldest vines in Mendoza, and one of the highest and coolest altitudes in the region, Perdriel is an iconic institution of Argentinian viticulture that is ideally suited to growing Malbec.
This fresh, easy drinking, 100% Malbec is no exception with its hypnotic, floral aroma and red fruit, elegance, and good acidity on the palate. Restrained (we suppose you could say “tamed”) tannins make the mouth velvety and the smooth finish keeps your lips coming back to the glass.
