Nuna Tetrada Organic
Chakana
Argentina - Mendoza    - Lujan de Cuyo

The Nuna vineyard (3,150 ft. elevation) in Agrelo is Chakana's first Demeter certified organic vineyard. Nuna means "soul" in Quechua.

This wine is the result of Chakana's soil studies of their Nuna vineyard. The name 'Tetrada' represents the four 4 red varieties planted on this same soil profile.

The soil profile shows great texture and finesse. Tannat and Cabernet Franc create structure and deepness, while Syrah and Malbec provide fruity flavors and roundness. The result is a balanced wine with nice texture; flavors of blueberries and elderberries; powerful and fleshy with a solid tannic base, but no hint of hardness.
