Dona Paula Malbec Estate 2011 750ml

Dona Paula Malbec Estate

Intense violet color. In the nose, aromas of black fruits, violets and spices. Mineral and graphite notes. Great balance and freshness in the mouth, with good concentration and medium structure. Soft tannins and persistent finish. Manual harvest takes place in the first week of April. Destemming is gentle, without breaking the grains. A cold pre-fermentation maceration is carried out, following Doña Paula’s style, to preserve primary aromas. Then, fermentation at low temperatures and a short post-fermentation maceration are performed. The wine is aged in first, second, and third-use French oak barriques for 10 months.

From our best vineyards in Altamira (at 1,150 meters [almost 3,773 ft] above sea level) and Gualtallary (at 1,350 meters [almost 4,430 ft] above sea level), Doña Paula Estate Malbec displays the unique characteristics of the Uco Valley, a terroir with cold climate, mineral and rocky soils. The trellis system used is espalier and the grapevines are head trained. The average yield is 8 t/ha (approximately 3.24 t/acre). Drip irrigation is used. At Doña Paula, our vineyards have always been managed using sustainable agriculture practices.

This is one of the best for the price. A true gem.
