Andeluna Cellars Torrontés Tupungato 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Andeluna name and label were chosen by our founder to symbolize the romance and mystery of the Argentine moon that illuminates the Uco Valley at the foot of the majestic Andes Mountains. Andeluna Cellars’ wines combine fruit grown in world-class vineyards with the very best of Argentine winemaking tradition. Located in Mendoza, the premiere wine region of Argentina near the town of Tupungato, the Andeluna Cellars winery was built at an elevation of 4,300 feet. Surrounded by 170 acres of mature vineyards that produce Bordeaux varietals of the finest quality, the 48,000 square foot winery has a one million liter tank capacity, a 1,200 barrel aging capacity and a 720,000 bottle storage capacity. Our passion for making the finest wines in Argentina is proudly reflected in every bottle of Andeluna wine. The 2008 Andeluna Torrontés has a very good body and a medium structure with marked freshness and acidity. There are delightful aromas of white flowers, jasmine, peach, apricot and grapefruit combine with flavors of tropical fruits, citrus and spices to produce a refreshingly exquisite wine with a long finish. Decanter Magazine says of it: "From 60 year-old vines, this shows a roundness and depth not always associated with the grape. Pretty but intense lavender and elderflower notes form the nose, with peachy hints in there as well. The palate possesses fine concentration, with crisp mineral seams and lovely length." (16.5)

Der hellgelbe Torrontés besitzt ein ausgeprägtes Bouquet von Aprikosen und Moscatotrauben, fein verwoben mit einer mineralischen Limettennote im Hintergrund. Weich und rund am Gaumen, mit delikater Fruchtsüsse, guter Balance und Länge.
