VINEYARDS  

At Doña Paula the vineyards have been managed using Sustainable Agriculture practices. The grapes for this wine come from 44 acres planted between 2000 and 2002 in the Finca Los Cerezos Estate in Tupungato with some very well reputed French clones, grafted on three different rootstocks. The vine spacing is 2.2 meters by 1.6 meters with strictly observed vertical shoot positioning and both spur and cane pruning. Canopy management tends to create an even and medium vigorous canopy in order to protect the bunch zone from excessive sun exposure. Yields range from 4 to 5 tn/acre.

VINIFICATION

 
All the stems of the grapes were removed. Reductive process using antioxidant sulphur dioxide and inert gas blanketing. Temperature reduction immediately after crushing in order to preserve flavours and aromas and reduce the level of SO2. Skins remain in contact with the juice from 8 to 16 hours at 5ºC. Pneumatic pressing separating two press fractions, according to polyphenol richness by conductivity and juice tasting.
This wine is produced in stainless steel tanks with cooling jackets and without contact with oak. Fermentation temperature ranges from 12 to 14°C. 85% of the wine in the stainless steel tanks has been in contact with the lees for 2 months at 10ºC.

TASTE
 
Pronounced green apples flavours combined with gooseberry, and delightful acidity make this wine clean and easy to drink.
