More about Lunta
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.
