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
The 2020 summer was dry and relatively cool compared to the previous year. This
allowed the maturation cycle for each variety to be slow and complete; the
polyphenolic maturity was the best in recent years. The grapes were harvested were in
optimal, healthy condition and display a very good level of natural acidity, which
translates into freshness to balance the concentrated fruit flavours.


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 once the grapes have reached optimum maturity levels.


Winemaking
The berries were selected by hand prior to vinification. Fermentation took place in
stainless steel tanks, using selected yeasts, at temperatures maintained at
approximately 14°C. This wine did not go through malolactic conversion and was
made in an unoaked style to retain the purity of fruit and refreshing character.


Tasting Note
A refreshing, unoaked cool climate Chardonnay showing pineapple and pear
characters. The palate is crisp and precise with an intense flavour and a mineral finish.
