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 grapes are sourced from two vineyards: Alluvia Vineyard, which is located in
Gualtallary, Tupungato, Uco Valley, at 1,350 metres above sea level; and the Los
Cerezos Vineyard which is located in the Cordon del Plata Mountains, Tupungato, Uco
Valley, at 1,000 metres above sea level. The climate typically presents warm days and
cool nights with an average temperature variation of 14°C. It is this diurnal temperature
variation, which extends the ripening period, balances the crisp acidity while
producing complex flavours in the grapes. The average annual rainfall is low at
280mm. At Doña Paula, the vineyards have always been managed using sustainable
agriculture practices. The combination of loamy, sandy, rocky and well drained soils
with an exhaustive selection of the best French clones, result in this premium example
of Sauvignon Blanc.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked. Destemming and pressing were gently carried out,
followed by a pellicular maceration, during which the skins imbue the must with their
varietal characteristics. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low
temperatures of between 12°C to 15°C in order to preserve the primary aromas.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of wild mint, grapefruit and white currant leap out of the glass. This is a
fresh, concentrated and well balanced Sauvignon Blanc with a persistent finish.
