La Puerta Reserva Bonarda 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Fermentation: Produced from carefully selected hand-picked grapes. After de-stemming and crushing, fermentation begins in a traditional manner with periodical pump-overs to ensure maximum extraction. Temperature is controlled at 24ºC to guarantee the wine’s fruity character. Aging: 30% of the wine is aged in French and American oak barrels and 70% in stainless steel tanks for 6 months which are then blended achieving great balance between the oak and the fruit.

Valle de la Puerta was established in 1994 and it started the olive and wine grape plantations in the same year. These plantations now cover 920 hectares / 2.273 acres, 770 hectares / 1.902 acres devoted to olives and 150 hectares / 375 acres to wine grapes. The property is located in Famatina Valley, La Rioja, Argentina; approximately 1.200 kms. (745 miles) from Buenos Aires by road. The beautiful Sierra Famatina, a group of mountains branching of the impressive Andean Chain, stretches into the province of La Rioja and attains a breathtaking height of 6.200 mts. (20.340 ft). Parallel to them and defining the Famatina Valley is Sierra Velazco, at 4.000 mts. (13.800 ft), hardly less imposing. Their influence on the grape growing conditions, on the valley ground, is as profound as the top-soil is deep. This soil, washed down from these mountains over the years, has filled the valley bed, raising the wine devoted lands to 1000 mts. (3280 ft) above sea level. Apart from providing a magnificent visual backdrop to the property developments, these handsome snow capped mountains have contributed with well drained top soils and magnificent water. All these factors create the perfect environment for a microclimate, which offers outstanding ripening conditions for our fine red and white grapes. Warm days, dry and cold nights, and desert-like topography are part of these environmental qualities. Read less

Tasting Notes:

This wine has an intense black-red colour with purple hues and aromas of ripe plums with floral notes. A velvety sensation and subtle character in the palate lead to a great lingering finish. Complexity of aromas and taste define the typical features of this varietal.

Temperature is controlled at 24ºC to guarantee the wine’s fruity character.
