This is a bright red wine with a complex and intense aromas of red fruits and dried fresh herbs, rosemary and spices. On the palate it is concentrated and full, with ripe, tasty black fruit, red plums with soft and delicate tannins. Soft and velvety, this wine lingers on the palate.

Producer

Brothers Hector and Pablo are passionate about expressing the characteristics of Argentina’s various terroirs along with freshness and bright, focused fruit, which is enhanced by their preference to age wine in concrete.

Originally from Mendoza, they have produced wines at properties in Italy, Argentina and Chile. Then, in 2002, Hector and Pablo began their own family winery.

The brothers are proud to explore and champion terroirs beyond Mendoza under their Aguijón de Abeja range, ‘bee sting’, referencing the laborious work of the bee. They look for distinct viticultural regions in Argentina and find the variety that best represents each province. They produce a Malbec from Neuquén province in Patagonia and Bonarda from the Catamarca province. The Malbec vines were planted back in 1930 and Bonarda in 1938. Both are aged in French oak, the former for seven months and the latter for six months.

Their Projectas Las Compuertas, consists of seven wines: Criolla, Cordisco, Charbono (Bonarda), Cabernet Franc, two Malbecs and a blend that pays homage to their mother Victoria (Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Cordisco). The vines are planted at 1,050m above sea level and farmed with organic practices.
