Tasting notes - Complex aromas of ripe red fruits and sweet notes of violet are complemented by delicate hints of vanilla, tobacco and a touch of chocolate. A structured, full bodied and aromatic wine, enhanced by rounded sweet tannins and a long-lasting finish. Ripe aromas of blackberry jam and dark chocolate with intense flavours and beautiful integration of fine elegance through to a very long finish. A powerhouse of a Malbec

Producer Note: Founded in 2003, Andeluna is a small boutique winery specialising in premium Bordeaux varietals of world class recognition. The vineyard covers 70 hectares in the beautiful Uco Valley near Tupungato, one of the best subregions 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. Situated at an altitude of 1,300 metres, the vineyard produces some of the best fruit in Argentina. Winemaker, Manuel Gonzalez (previously Head Winemaker at Pulenta Estate and Chief Oenologist at Trivento) works alongside Andeluna's wine consultant Hans Vinding Diers to make outstanding wines which have propelled this producer into the global 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. Winemaking: Manually harvested at dawn, in April when the grapes had reached full phenolic maturity, they were carefully selected by hand, to ensure no green material or imperfect fruit entered the must. Pre-fermentation maceration took place to extract a rich colour, prior to temperature controlled fermentation. Post-fermentation maceration lasted for approximately 10 days to further extract colour, flavour and fine tannins. When this was complete, the wine was racked. It was aged for 12 to 18 months in new French oak barrels and received a minimum of eight months bottle ageing.
