Producer noteDona Paula is a leading, modern winery at the forefront of exploring and investing in new, high quality wine regions in Argentina. First established in 1997, they own all of their vineyards covering 700 hectares. These vineyard sites are located in the best sub-regions within Mendoza including Ugarteche, Altamira, Gualtallary and Tupungato. They practise sustainable methods in the vineyards, maximising the true expression of terroir. Their continuous innovation in terms of vineyard management ensures top quality wines from one year to the next.
Grapes are sourced from Dona Paula's estate owned vineyards, Finca el Alto in Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo. Vines are trained using the double cordon and yields are 9-10 tons per hectare. Everything is managed using sustainable practices.
Picked at the end of March, the grapes are completely destemmed and then partially crushed. Must is cooled to reduce the temperature immediately after crushing and maintain flavours and aromas, by reducing the level of SO2. Alcoholic fermentation in temperature controlled concrete tanks, for ten days at 22°C with peaks of 28°C for full diffusion of skin components. Total maceration period of 15 days. Natural malolactic fermentation takes place at 16°C
Serve with beef casserole or hamburgers.
