Andeluna Pasionado Cuatro Cepas 2012

Tasting Notes

Ripe red fruits combined with a spiciness and hint of anise. The finish has notes of chocolate and vanilla. Ripe rounded tannin, complex and full bodied.

Producer Note

Andeluna was founded in 2003 by the late Ward Lay whose family had interests in many industries and companies including Frito-Lay and Pepsico. The winery and vineyards cover 70 hectares in the beautiful Uco Valley near Tupungato, one of the best sub-regions of Mendoza. By night you can often see the moon illuminating the magnificent Andes Mountains nearby and the winery has been named after this stunning scene. At an altitude of 1,300 metres these vineyards produce some of the best fruit in Argentina. Their new winemaker, Manuel Gonzalez (previously Head Winemaker at Pulenta Estate and Chief Enologist at Trivento) works alongside Andeluna's wine consultant Michel Rolland, making outstanding wines which have propelled this producer into the world spotlight in a very short space of time.
Their Pasionado range is only made in exceptional vintages and rivals some of the great wines of the world.
