Intense violet-blue colour. On the nose it shows the particular plum character that comes from the Malbec and impressive spice notes, white pepper and red fruits from the Syrah. It is sweet and has a pleasant mouth feel with fresh fruit acidity.
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 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.
The Syrah comes from old vines in the poorest rocky and clay soils in Dona Paula's vineyard in Ugarteche
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 colour. The first part of the fermentation takes place under wild yeast culture and is finished with inoculating selected yeast. Fermented at 25ºC, and then racked to new, second and third use French barrels (33% of each one) where the wine is aged for 8 months before being bottled.
Malbec 60%, Syrah 40%
