Doña Paula is a leading, modern winery at the forefront of exploring and investing in
new, high quality wine regions in Argentina. Established in 1997, they own all of their
vineyards covering 700 hectares. These vineyard sites are located in the best
subregions within Mendoza including Ugarteche, Altamira, Gualtallary and
Tupungato. They cultivate the vineyards using sustainable methods, maximising the
true expression of terroir. Their continuous innovation in vineyard management
ensures top quality wines from one year to the next.
The grapes come from Doña Paula’s Los Cerezos Vineyard, which is located in the
Cordón del Plata Mountains, in the Tupungato area of the Uco Valley. Situated at
1,000 meters above sea level, the climate presents warm days and cool nights. The
region experiences an average temperature variation of 14°C and an average
annual rainfall of 280 mm. Good diurnal temperature differences produce berries
with concentrated flavours and balancing acidity. The loam soil sits on top of a
calcium carbonate layer at approximately one metre below the surface. The vines
are trained on espalier systems, using drip irrigation. At Doña Paula, the vineyards
have always been managed using sustainable agricultural practices.
The grapes were picked during the third week in February. The must was cooled to
reduce the temperature and gently pressed to maintain the vibrant flavours and
aromas. Maceration took place until the desired level of varietal characteristics had
been transferred from the skin to the must. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in
temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the primary aromas and
retain the fresh style.
This fresh, attractive Sauvignon Blanc shows intense aromas of yellow grapefruit, lime
and passion fruit that are well integrated with gooseberry and herbal notes.
