Andeluna Pasionado Malbec 2013 (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:            Deep red-purple colour, a delicately perfumed nose of violets, coffee and chocolate. Sumptuous, lush red berry fruits on the palate. Very elegant tannins and a light spiciness from the oak

Style:                        Full bodied

Variety:                    90% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Viticulture:               Fruit was hand harvested from premium grapes grown at high elevation in Tupungato, Mendoza. The yields were less than 8kg/ha

Region:                     Mendoza 

Soil Type:                 Alluvial, sandy stone (good drainage)

Winemaker:             Silvio Alberto with consultant Michael Rolland

Closure:                  Cork

Fermentation:        Fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. The juice was pumped over the skins daily to maximise flavour extraction. The wine was then aged in 85% new French oak and 15% American oak for 18 months with a further 8 months in bottle before release

Alcohol:                  14.7%

Food:                      Grilled vegetables, pasta, red meats, rich sauces
