A bargain banger of a Cab Sav filled to the brim with notes of red bell pepper, white pepper, and clove over deep, rich fruits. Full-bodied and textured on the palate with rounded tannins, big fruit flavours, and a spicy, persistent finish. The berries were carefully, and manually selected by hand before vinification. A pre-fermentation maceration took place at low temperatures. Fermentation followed, with natural and selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at temperatures maintained at 26°C. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for a period of three months, followed by at least three months cellaring in bottle.
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. Since 2020, the vines have been certified organic
