ANDELUNA GRAND RESERVE PASIONADO 2004

Varietal Components: Malbec 49%, Merlot 26%, Cabernet Sauvignon 17%, and Cabernet Franc 8%.

Vineyards: Grapes come from our vineyards in Tupungato, situated at 1300 m.a.s.l. Very low-yield (lower than 4500 kg per ha) plots were selected, with alluvial soils which are sandy and permeable.

Winemakers: Silvio Alberto

Consulting Enologist: Michel Rolland

Harvesting: At the optimum moment of polyphenol ripeness, at dawn, the berries were hand picked into small boxes.

Vinification: Berries hand selected. Pre-fermentation maceration carried out with dry ice. Racking and post fermentation maceration carried out for 20 days.

Aging: Each of the varietals were individually vinificated and aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels. Then the Blend was performed. This Blend rested for 6 more months in new French oak barrels to nurture and harmonize the particular characteristics of each varietal.

Tasting notes: Characteristic of this wine is its intense red color, with violet and ruby highlights. Complex 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. The aromatic richness of this Blend is made complete with the touch of vanilla and chocolate acquired from new French oak barrels, where it rested for 18 months. This is a full bodied, structured wine with well rounded tannins, qualities which give it a long finish. Decant and serve between 16┬░ and 18┬░.
