  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    All of the wines in the lineup from Dominio de Las Abejas are best summed up by a single word “delicious”, as their balance of fruit, tannin, texture, and persistence all seems to perfectly tweak the pleasure dial to 11.

    This is a “skin contact” white wine, which means it is a white wine made like a red (with (juice was left in contact with the skins during fermentation). The consequence of this is color (orange rather than yellow like most white wine) and a completely different body than your typical white wine. Here you have the textures, complexity and even some of the structural elements you are accustomed to finding in a red wine, but it the envelope of grace and elegance of a bright and weightless white wine. As good as it is it’s going to be almost impossible to find given the small production and high demand for this style. If you manage to find some, go for it.

    2022 is the first year these wines have been imported into the US and we anticipate that they will quickly become a reference for what Mexico is producing in the vein of natural wine.

    Another field blend from Las Abejas, this is a compilation of all their white grapes, but made into an amber (skin contact white) wine. All grapes were picked on the same day and co-fermented on native yeast for a period of a period of 20 days at the lowest temperature possible in order to manage the tannin coming from the skin contact. Like all the rest of the wines from Las Abejas, this was bottled without filtration or fining.
