Valle de la Puerta Bonarda la Puerta Alta 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Only the best fruit goes into La Puerta Alta our estate grown and bottled wines. The grapes are hand-picked from drip irrigated vines which are hand pruned and canopy-managed for optimum flavor ripeness. Once the wines are produced the best reds are carefully selected for the Alta range and kept in separate tanks until both primary and secondary fermentation is complete. Then they are blended with our Reserva wines aged in French and American oak barrels for 6 months.

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:

The wine is a rich deep red in color, whilst the nose shows vibrant plum with flower nuances. There is an abundance of juicy fruit on the palate with perfectly integrated oak and fine tannins with each element impeccably balanced.
