Andeluna Altitud Malbec
Andeluna Altitud Malbec, Mendoza Argentina
Andeluna Altitud Malbec is the baby brother to Andeluna's Pasionado range, but it's a baby brother with some serious kick and a maturity beyond its years. Argentine Malbec of this quality and precision is hard to find for this price, and it's a testament to both the winemaker and Andeluna's prime vineyard sites in the hills of Tupungato that this wine is as good as it is.
On the palate, it's all signature Malbec - lots of raspberry, redcurrant and a hint of blackberry, with a distinct chocolatey, mocha note to the finish and plush, soft tannins. Try it with something Mediterranean, perhaps some ratatouille or a gratin of mozzarella and aubergine.
The wine was matured for 12 months in French oak barrels, before spending a further 6 months maturing in bottle. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification.
