Andeluna 1300 Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Cabernet Sauvignon often plays second-fiddle to Malbec in Argentina, but with a climate as suited to viticulture as Mendoza's, it's rapidly gaining in popularity. The Andeluna 1300 Cabernet Sauvignon is both complex and approachable, with classic Cabernet flavours of blackberry, cloves and black pepper, with subtle vanilla inflections from the oak. As with all of Andeluna's wines, this is incredibly good value. Try it with a vegan burger with a spicy bean patty or with the smokey flavours of some roasted Mediterranean vegetables.
Following fermentation, the wine was aged for three months in French oak casks, and then matured for a further 3 months in bottle, melding the fruit and oak flavours. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.
Andeluna is a modern, innovative producer based in Mendoza, Argentina. Utilising the best techniques and consultancy from both the Old World and New, they are producing wines of global prestige with forward-thinking and vegan-friendly technology.
The name "Andeluna" evokes the gorgeous scenery of the Andes Mountains under the light of a full Argentinean Moon. Andeluna Wines is a boutique winery with estate-owned vineyards founded in 2003 by the partnership of an American businessman and a passionate Argentine vintner. Michel Rolland, a French specialist and wine guru, works with winemaker Silvio Alberto to create boutique wines from their low-yield vines. The winery and voneyards cover almost 200 acres and are located 1,300 meters above sea level inn the Uco Valley of the Mondoza region. Their 4,500 square meter wine cellar and in-house laboratory allow them to produce wines to a high standard. The winery cow combines top-of-the-line winemaking processes with the culture and terroir of Mendoza to produce award-winning red wines.
After selecting the very best bunches, the grapes are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in French and American oak for six months and then aged for a further six months in the bottle before release.
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.
This Andeluna 1300 Cabernet Sauvignon has a full body and is perfectly balanced with very good structure. Aromas of Morello cherry, blackberry, red pepper, eucalyptus and chocolate with notes of spiced fruits and coffee combine with flavors of raspberries, cherries, dark chocolate and almonds to complement the sweet, rounded tannins and produce a very good fresh finish to this elegant wine.
