Dona Paula Sauvage Blanc Uco Valley NV

Argentina's first 100% Sauvignon Blanc sparkling wine
shows intense aromas of orange blossom, with hints of
grapefruit and an intriguing touch of mint.
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 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.
Vineyard
The Los Cerezos Vineyard is located in the Cordón del Plata mountains, at 1,000 metres
above sea level. The soils are predominantly loam with a calcium carbonate layer
120cm below the surface, which provides a cooling effect for the vines. The climate
here presents warm days and cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 14
°C and an average annual rainfall of 280 mm. The vines yield 12 tonnes per hectare
and are grown on espaliers, using drip irrigation and sustainable viticultural techniques.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully harvested to avoid oxidation during the third week of
February. They were then cooled and softly pressed prior to a pellicular maceration
which transferred the varietal characters from the skin to the must. Alcoholic
fermentation was carried out at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. A short
secondary fermentation took place using the Charmat method, forming the
characteristic bubbles- the prise de mousse.
Tasting Note
Pale and interesting, Dona Paula's Sauvage Blanc is the first 100% Sauvignon Blanc
sparkling wine from Argentina. Showing intense aromas of orange blossom, white
peach, with hints of grapefruit and an intriguing touch of mint, it is crisp, lively and
