A generous and silky wine from the mecca of Malbec, delivering rich, ripe black cherries on the nose with a touch of graphite, liquorice and more than a hint of vanilla on the finish. After hand-selecting the very best bunches, the grapes were destemmed and underwent a pre-fermentation maceration at low temperatures. Fermentation took place with natural and selected yeasts, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at approximately 26°C. The wine was matured in previously used French oak barrels for three months and then cellared for a further three months before release.
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
