Andeluna Pasionado Uco Valley Cabernet Franc 2019

A very refined and perfumed wine showing a lovely
combination of coffee beans, capsicum and notes of
graphite and fennel with a full, long herbal finish.
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 Gualtallary, Tupungato in the Uco Valley at 1,300 metres
above sea level. At this altitude the diurnal temperature difference with warm days and
cool nights creates a long hang-time, concentrating the flavours in the berries, while
retaining balancing acidity. The vines are irrigated by a drip-water system that
regulates and supplies the exact amount of water that the plant needs. The vineyard
soils are alluvial, sandy and permeable.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked at the cool of dawn in April, when they had reached full
polyphenolic maturity. The berries were manually selected and the best berries
underwent cold pre-fermentation maceration. Fermentation took place with natural
yeasts in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 26°C. The wine was aged in
used French oak barrels ( 60% second passage, 40% third passage) for 12 months and
then cellared in bottle for a minimum of eight months prior to release.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas fill the glass, with deep red fruits and a remarkable presence of red bell
pepper, fennel, mint, anise, eucalyptus and basil. A structured, full bodied wine, with
rounded tannins which result in a pleasant and persistent finish.
