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.
Sourced from Dona Paula's estate vineyards in Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo. The vines yield approximately 9 tonnes per hectare and drip irrigation is used. The vineyards are managed using sustainable practices.
Manual harvest takes place in the first week of April. After gentle destemming, the must is cold macerated before fermentation in order to preserve primary aromas. Temperature during fermentation ranges between 23 and 25°C (73.4 and 77°F). A post-fermentation maceration is carried out for 10 to 15 days and malolactic fermentation is done in barriques. Ageing takes place in first, second, and third-use French oak barriques during 12 months.
Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
Serve with bangers and mash or beef lasagne.
