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. The vineyards have always been cultivated using sustainable methods which helps to maximise the true expression of terroir, and in 2019 Doña Paula was certified as a sustainably managed winery by Bodegas de Argentina. Continuous innovation in vineyard management ensures Doña Paula produces top quality wines from one year to the next.
2018 saw a return to higher yields, after the low yielding vintages of 2016 and 2017. Doña Paula had a record harvest in 2018, with the highest average in the province. The growing season was dry, with very low rainfall and average temperatures, which resulted in fruit with optimal ripeness. 2018 is being hailed as a classic year for Mendoza.
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 hand-picked early in the morning to avoid oxidation, during the third week of February. They were cooled 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.
