LUNTA MALBEC

LUNTA MALBEC Image

This old-vine Malbec hails from a restored ancient riverside vineyard overlooking the Lunlunta Hills and highlights fresh, expressive floral and red fruit characteristics. Roberto de la Mota, Argentina’s legendary winemaker behind Mendel Wines, makes Lunta in a vibrant style to showcase the terroir of this estate vineyard. He personally revived this forgotten 1928 vineyard, recognizing this unique location’s promise to craft a truly dynamic wine. The wine is named after the region, Lunlunta, which the ancient Huarpe Indians named to represent the sound of stones colliding in the flowing Mendoza River.

The Lunta Malbec is hand-harvested in the Mayor Drummond vineyard of Luján de Cuyo. It undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels. The wine is aged for 12 months in 50% oak barrels and 50% stainless steel.
