Producer Note
Founded in 2003, Andeluna produces premium mountain wines from their 70 hectare
vineyard situated at an elevation of 1,300 metres in the rocky terroir of Gualtallary,
Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Mendoza. By night, the moon can be seen illuminating
the magnificent Andes Mountains nearby and the winery has been named after this
stunning scene. The vineyard is managed using sustainable practices and in 2015 the
entire vineyard was soil mapped with cultivation methods adapted accordingly.
Winemaker, Manuel Gonzalez (previously Head Winemaker at Pulenta Estate and Chief
Oenologist at Trivento) works alongside Andeluna's wine consultant Hans Vinding Diers,
together they use minimal intervention to create outstanding wines which have
propelled this producer into the global spotlight in a very short space of time.
Vintage
2019 saw outstanding quality in the Uco Valley region. Excellent conditions during the
growing season resulted in good quality fruit with expressive aromatics and freshness
due to the natural acidity.
Vineyard
The grapes were grown in vineyards located in Tupungato, 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 at optimum maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested and macerated at low temperatures to start the
extraction of colour, flavour, aromas and tannins. Fermentation took place in stainless
steel tanks using natural and selected yeasts and was maintained at temperatures of
approximately 26°C. Made in an unoaked style, to reveal the vibrancy of the coolclimate fruit.
Tasting- Note
A vibrant Merlot with aromas of Morello cherry, blackcurrant, blackberry layered with
hints of spicy nutmeg and aromatic herbs. Smooth on the palate with a soft texture
and a long, fine finish.
