Dona Paula Estate Malbec 2015

Tasting notes

Intense violet colour with aromas of plums, black cherries, liquorice and dried herbs. Ripe and elegant with a lingering finish.

Producer note

Dona 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 practice 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.

Soil

Rocky clay with mineral deposits

Viticulture

The grapes for this wine were sourced from two of Dona Paula's estate vineyards. Finca Alluvia in Gualtallary, a recently discovered premium sub region of Tupungato in Uco Valley and Finca Los Indios, located in Altamira, Uco Valley.

Vinification

Careful and gentle de-stemming with partial berry crushing to provide fresh berry aromas. Cool pre-fermentation maceration for 2 weeks to extract primary aromas, flavours and intense colour. The juice is fermented at low temperatures and then undergoes a short post fermentation maceration. The wine is then racked to first, second and third use French oak barriques (33% of each one) where the wine is aged for 10 mths before being bottled.
