Andeluna 1300 Merlot 2017      

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 in our opinio is already producing world-class Cabernet.

Tasting Note:            Complex nose of cedar, kirsch and cloves, sweet and silky tannins with cherry, vanilla and pepper characters on the palate. Smooth and rounded with lush fruit flavours and soft underlying vanilla and oak notes
