Producer Note

Founded in 2003, Andeluna is a small boutique winery specialising in premium Bordeaux varietals of world class recognition. The vineyard covers 70 hectares in the beautiful Uco Valley near Tupungato, one of the best subregions of Mendoza. By night you can often see the moon illuminating the magnificent Andes Mountains nearby and the winery has been named after this stunning scene. Situated at an altitude of 1,300 metres, the vineyard produces some of the best fruit in Argentina. Winemaker, Manuel Gonzalez (previously Head Winemaker at Pulenta Estate and Chief Oenologist at Trivento) works alongside Andeluna's wine consultant Hans Vinding Diers to make outstanding wines which have propelled this producer into the global spotlight in a very short space of time. Their Pasionado range is only made in exceptional vintages and rivals some of the great wines of the world. Vintage

The 2016 winter was intense and harsh with heavy snowfall in the Andes Mountains. Late frosts combined with menacing, intense cold breezes reduced yields in the 2017 vintage. Unfortunately the Malbec was seriously affected and the véraison was mixed and delayed. However warmer weather later in the season, combined without any significant rainfall or hail events helped to revive the vintage resulting in impeccable, healthy fruit. Vineyard

The grapes were grown in vineyards located in Tupangato, at over 1,300 metres above sea level. The area is characterised by its wide diurnal temperature range, which produces grapes with a great intensity of colour and a distinctive aromatic expression. The vineyards are adequately irrigated through a drip management system, which provides exactly the right amount of water needed by the plant. Canopy management in the vineyard controls yields and produces small, concentrated berries with the perfect amount of sun exposure. The vines are grown in alluvial, sandy soils and are manually harvested. Winemaking

After hand selecting the very best bunches, the grapes were destemmed and underwent a pre-fermentation maceration at low temperatures. Fermentation took place with natural and selected yeasts, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at approximately 26°C. 70% was matured in previously used French oak barrels for three months and then cellared for a further three months prior to release. Tasting Note

Diverse aromas of ripe red fruits, strawberry and plums combine with delicate floral notes. Full bodied but smooth and balanced, this is a classic expression of Argentinian Malbec. Serving Suggestion
