Winemaker Notes

Intense violet, dark in depth. Wide floral aroma, especially violets, and red fruits such as raspberries and strawberries.

It presents soft tannins of great volume, which give it a long and refined finish.

Wine & Spirits

Silvio Alberto worked with wine consultant Michel Rolland to craft this wine, a vineyard selection of fruit from high-altitude vineyards in Tupungato, fermented in stainless-steel tanks and aged in French and American oak casks for a year. It’s dark and extracted, with a reductive stink at first; then the fruit emerges, like sunlight from behind a cloud: clear, bright and piercing in its clarity. The flavors last, unevolved for now, just filled with the pure purple strength of malbec. Best Buy

TA 91
Tim Atkin

Typical of the perfumed style of Malbec that the cooler sub-region of Gualtallary often produces, this is a well-crafted wine showing the purity and focus that are features of the new approach at Andeluna. Balanced, racy and aromatic. 2019-24

Andeluna Winery Image
Andeluna Cellars is a winery and vineyard rich with history and romance –just like the country it calls home. This beautiful place is the inspiration for the name Andeluna, which was chosen to symbolize the romance and heritage of the Argentine moon illuminating the magnificent Andes Mountains that frame the Uco Valley. The combination of great vineyards growing classic varietals, with world-class winemaking, creates flavors and wines that cannot be found anywhere else.

Premium quality wine starts with premium quality grapes, and this is the essence of Andeluna. In the late 19th Century, many Italians immigrated to Argentina seeking opportunities that the rich and beautiful land provided. Searching for nothing less than the perfect place to make the world's best wine, they came to Mendoza and planted vineyards that began the heritage of Argentina's winemaking industry.

For generations, Argentina has grown and perfected the traditional grape varieties of the Old World – Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. But the feet of Andeluna don't rest in the soil of the Old World. Instead, they are planted firmly in the New World in a stunning series of vineyards that climb up the foothills of the Andes.

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

View all products

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
