Andeluna Grand Reserve Pasionado 2005
The Andeluna name and label were chosen by its 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. This Grand Reserve Pasionado 2004 is perfectly balanced with an excellent structure. It exhibits aromas of blackberry, strawberry and black pepper with notes of chocolate and tea that combine with flavors of plum, raspberry and vanilla with notes of Morello cherry liqueur and roasted walnut to complement the sweet, rounded tannins. This exceptional wine has great fruit concentration and a velvety finish.
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. French grape varieties, Argentine soils, Italian ancestry, world class winemaking, American drive, the latest in technology and a team of people who all seek the same goal: to make the greatest wines in the world.
