We are so happy to announce that in the June 2018 edition of Wine Advocate, our Las Compuertas Project 'Malbec 5 Suelos' 2016 received 91 points!
'Proyecto las Compuertas' (The Compuertas Project) began in 2007, when brothers Pablo and Hector Durigutti purchased 5 Ha of old vine Malbec in Las Compuertas, Mendoza, steps from their winery. At the outset of The Compuertas Project, Pablo and Hector had a precise analysis done of their vineyards, identifying 5 distinct soil types. They have carefully adjusted their care of the vines accordingly, coaxing the best grapes out of the 104 year old vines. Their 'Malbec 5 Suelos' is made from the grapes of each parcel being vinified separately in concrete eggs with native yeasts, before a final cut is made. You can learn more about 'Malbec 5 Suelos' and all of the Las Compuertas Project wines here.
