About the Producer

Introducing Estela Perinetti and her wonderful wine range known as Las Estelas. Estela was one of the first of South America’s rapidly growing family of women winemakers. She spent more than two decades heading up some of Catena’s most high-profile winery projects and she has been very much in demand as one of Mendoza’s leading consultants since. Las Estelas is her baby!

The story begins in the early 1940s when Estela’s grandfather, Dr. Hector Perinetti, son of an immigrant from Piedmont, purchased a piece of land in Tupungato and planted Semillon. (At that time this area was considered too cold for red grapes!) When aged just two years old his eldest son, Hector Junior, named the vineyard – Finca Mangato.

As these vines became old and increasingly non-viable in the 1990s, Estela and her mother – Estela Armando, also a winemaker! – decided to grub up the Semillon to plant red varietals such as Malbec, the Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, and Merlot and Syrah, and these vines form the basis of Las Estelas today.

Vineyard and Winery

This wine is the result of Estela Perinetti's interpretation of the Bordeaux varietals in such special terroir. Cold nights, sunny days, stony soils and water coming from the Andes, give the fresh and elegant character to this blend.

The vineyard is Finca Mangato, located in El Peral district, Tupungato at 1250m/410 ft above sea level. The soils are loamy soil with stone and there is drip irrigation from the Rio Las Tunas. Vines are trained to vertical shoot position double guyot. Of the individual varieties the Cabernet Sauvignon was hand harvested on April 6th, with the Malbec earlier on March 26th.

Upon arrival at the winery the grapes are fully-destemmed and crushed. Fermentation took place in 500 liters barrels after 10 to 15 days maceration to soak up colour and tannin. After fermentation the wine went through 100% malolactic conversion before spending 16 months in 50% new French oak and 50% second use 500 litre barrels.
