Andeluna 1300 Malbec 2016


Andeluna was created by its owner, international businessman H.Ward Lay (son of the founder of Lays – the parent company of Walkers crisps). The winery and vineyards are situated in the beautiful Uco Valley close to the town of Tupungato. This area, close to the Andes, is producing some of the best fruit in Argentina and according to us is already producing world-class Cabernet.

 

Tasting Note:         Deep red colour with a purple hue, bouquet of lavender and strawberries. Lush redcurrant, plum and morello cherry flavours on the palate with hints of chocolate and pepper. Well rounded and soft tannins with a lingering finish
