The grapes for this wine are carefully hand-selected from vineyards located at 1300m ASL in Tupungato in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. After maceration, fermentation is started with natural yeasts and takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine aged in 1st, 2nd and 3rd use French oak barrels (70% of the wine) for a period of 8-10 months and then cellared in bottles for a minimum of 6 months before release.

Red with ruby hints and intense aromas of black and bell pepper along with notes of red fruits such as cherry and cassis. Round and full-bodied on the palate with notes of fruit and spice. Structuring tannins and a long, satisfying finish.

About the Producer
ANDELUNA is a family-owned winery located in the rocky region of Gualtallary, Tupungato, Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes mountains of Argentina.The name Andeluna was created from merging two concepts - ANDE comes from the ANDES mountain range where you have a combination of mountain, unique soil, water, altitude and man's knowledge; and LUNA is moon in Spanish, a place of inspiration and magic, both indispensable ingredients for the creation of a great wine. Originally founded in 2003 by Ward Lay, a North American investor, the winery is now owned by the Barale family since Lay's passing in 2011. Manuel Gonzalez Bals is Andeluna's winemaker and Hans Vinding-Diers is the enology consultant.

Gualtallary, located high in the Andes in the Uco Valley of Mendoza, is one of the most prestigious wine-producing regions in Argentina. There are only eight wineries in this region, representing less than 1% of all the wineries in Mendoza. The soil in Gualtallary is rocky and calcareous with higher minerality. The vines grown here naturally produce low yields, leading to wines of greater concentration and intensity. Andeluna focuses on making wines that are representative of this unique terroir and uses sustainable viticulture techniques and other environmentally-friendly practices.
