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 are grown in Tupungato, which is situated at an altitude of 1,300 metres
above sea level. The area is characterised by its great diurnal temperature swings,
which encourages aromatic expression and a great intensity of colour in the wine. The
vines are irrigated by a drip-water system that regulates and supplies the exact amount
of water that the plant needs. Grown in soils which are predominantly alluvial and
sandy, the vines undergo strict canopy management in order to reduce yields.


Winemaking
The clusters were manually selected and underwent pre-fermentation maceration at
low temperatures. Fermentation took place with natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks at
temperatures maintained at approximately 26°C. The wine was aged in French oak
barrels for eight to 12 months, followed by a minimum of six months in bottle, prior to
release.


Tasting Note
A full flavoured Malbec with intense aromas of red fruits and violets. Sweet fruit on the
palate is backed by soft, but high volume tannins which give the wine a long and
exquisite finish.
