ANDELUNA PASIONADO

PASIONADO LINE

CUATRO CEPAS

We honour with passion the soil, the altitude, the Andes and the moon.
The fundamentals, the root systems, give life to these wines: character, harmony, charm. This wine represents all the purity, the simplicity and the exquisite expression of its varietal.

Vineyards
Gualtallary, Tupungato, Mendoza At 1.300 mts. (4,300 ft.)

Vinification
• Manual harvest at dawn, in the month of April, at the time of full
polyphenolic maturity.
• Manual selection of berries and pre-fermentative cold maceration.
• Each of the varietals is individually elaborated and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. (Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot 50% new French oak, 25% 1st use & 25% 2nd use. Cabernet Franc 60% 1st use French oak & 40% 2nd use). The blend is then performed, harmonizing the particularities of each varietal and resulting in a unique wine, a true reflection of our soil and philosophy. This wine is then kept in bottles for a minimum of 8 months before release.

Tasting Notes
Very intense color, deep hues with violet and dark red tones.
Aromas of black fruits combined with spicy, herbal and floral notes.
In the mouth, it is a powerful and outstanding wine at all times, silky tannins and lingering finish.
