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.
Vintage
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.
Vineyard
Selección de Bodega Malbec comes from Alluvia vineyard, located in Gualtallary, Uco
Valley, at 1,350 meters above the sea level. This head-pruned vineyard is set on the
streambed, its soil contains medium-size alluvial rocks covered with calcium carbonate
patinas and intermingled with sand and chalk enamel. It is one of the poorest soils with
regards to nutrients, its organic matter is almost zeron forcing the roots deep into the
soil in search of nutrients, and it has a great drainage capacity. The weather is cool
during the days and cold during the nights. The vineyards have always been cultivated
using sustainable agricultural practices.
Winemaking
The grapes underwent a cold maceration prior to the alcoholic fermentation, in order
to preserve the primary fruit aromas. A wild fermentation took place with native yeasts
at low temperatures. The wine was then aged new French barriques of which 50% were
new, for 16 months.
Tasting Note
A sumptuous and opulent wine showing rich, black fruit flavours, accompanied by fresh
raspberries and mineral notes reminiscent of chalk and graphite. Great structure on the
textured palate with balancing freshness through to an elegant finish.
