ProducerNote
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
maximize 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 grapes for the Estate Riesling come from the ‘Alluvia Vineyard’ in Gualtallary, Uco
Valley. Situated at 1,350 meters above sea level, the subregion of Gualtallary is
renowned for producing elegant and aromatic wines. The climate presents warm days
and cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 12.5°C. This diurnal
temperature swing encourages a long ripening period, producing a greater
concentration of flavors in the grapes while retaining balancing acidity. The vines are
cultivated using an espalier training method and are drip irrigated using melted snowwater from the mountains. The vines are grown in sandy soils with alluvial and
calcareous stones. The vineyards at Doña Paula are managed sustainably.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked during the first week of March. A very careful
destemming and pressing process was carried out in order to protect the high quality
of the grapes. Cool fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures
of 12 to 15°C to retain freshness. The wine was made in an unoaked style to preserve
the purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
Expressive aromas of jasmine are complemented by zesty citrus notes. Refreshing and
beautifully balanced with a marked mineral streak, it has a complex yet attractively
delicate character and a long, lifted finish.
