Andeluna Pasionado Cabernet Franc 2010 (wooden box)


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:               Up-front bouquet of cloves, smoky oak and plums followed by chocolate and caramel on the palate with sweet fruit, Velvety smooth tannins and a lingering finish

Variety:                      100% Cabernet Franc

Viticulture:                 Small bunches were hand harvested from low yielding vines in Tupungato, Mendoza. This area has high levels of sunshine hours and low rainfall. The winery irrigates with water from the snowmelt on the Andes Mountains

Food:                       Roast meats, spicy or tomato based sauces
