Producer Note

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, maximising the true expression of terroir. Continuous innovation in vineyard management ensures Doña Paula produces top quality wines from one year to the next.

Vintage

Warm temperatures during spring resulted in early bud break and early flowering. However, the combination of two cold springs in succession in the previous years (2015/16) has resulted in smaller clusters forming in 2017. Excellent weather conditions during the ripening period accelerated the harvest and ensured the grapes were in perfect health when picked. The 2017 vintage will be remembered for its superb quality, flavour concentration and low volume.

Vineyard

The grapes are sourced from Dona Paula's estate owned vineyard, Finca el Alto in Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo. The vineyard is situated at 1,050 metres above sea level where the soil is nutrient-poor clay. The climate is characterised by warm days and cool nights with an average temperature variation of 14°C. The vines are trained using the espalier trellis system and drip irrigation is used. The vineyard has always been managed using sustainable practices.

Winemaking

The grapes were destemmed. A cold pre-fermentation maceration was carried out to preserve the primary aromas. The must was then cooled and a traditional fermentation was carried out. A post-fermentation maceration followed lasting between 10 and 15 days. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation, prior to being bottled.

Tasting Note

A full flavoured Malbec with sweet, spicy and intense aromas of ripe red fruits, complemented by subtle notes of herbs. A well balanced wine with a soft and velvety texture and a rich finish.

Serving Suggestion

A lovely accompaniment to barbecued meat, gourmet sausages or steak and chips.
