Andeluna is a small boutique winery specialising in premium Bordeaux varietals of world class recognition. Their estate owned vineyards are located in the higher altitude vineyards of Tupungato, one of the best subregions of Mendoza. Their wines are under the special care of winemaker Silvio Alberto along with the expert help of French specialist and wine guru, Michel Rolland.
After selecting the very best bunches, the grapes are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in new French (85%) and American (15%) oak for eighteen months and for a further eight months in the bottle before release. This wine was hand crafted by winemaker, Silvio Alberto, in collaboration with Michel Rolland.
Grapes come from our vineyards located in Tupungato at an altitude of 1300 meters above sea level. The plants are irrigated by a drop-water system that regulate and supply the exact amount of water that the plant needs.
The Andeluna Pasionado Cuatro Cepas has aromas of ripe red fruits, typical of Malbec, the spiciness of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, plus delicate hints of anise released by the Cabernet Franc.
