The blending components of this wine are grapes coming from the vineyards in Finca El Alto in Ugarteche, Luján de Cuyo, and a smaller portion from the high altitude vineyards in Uco Valley. Double spur pruned cordon with 2 shoots per spur and an average of three clusters per bunch provide a regular yield of 9 to 10 tonnes per hectare. At Doña Paula the vineyards and wines have always been managed using Sustainable Agriculture practices.

 
 
VINIFICATION

 

100% hand picked grapes are completely destemmed and then partially crushed. As a consequence, some berries remain untouched providing carbonic maceration character to the wine. Must is cooled immediately after crushing in order to maintain flavours and aromas, by reducing the level of SO2 needed.  Carbon dioxide gas is dispersed over the must to prevent oxygen from being in touch with the juice. 48-hour cool pre-fermentation maceration is performed to extract primary flavours and colour. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature controlled tanks, for a period of 10 days and at 22°C with peaks of 28°C.

A very good soft fruity red with depth. A snip at the sale price!
