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.
James Suckling: Rated 92 Points
"A juicy and fruity wine showing hints of orange peel and stones. A medium to full body, fine tannins, and a delicious finish. Excellent improvement. Drink or hold." (June 21, 2017)

The grapes are hand-picked the first week of April. In the winery, they are destemmed gently, without breaking the berries. A cold pre-fermentative maceration is carried out to preserve the primary aromas. Fermentation takes place at low temperatures, and a post-fermentation maceration is later performed for 15 to 20 days. The wine is aged in first, second and third-use French oak barrels for 12 months.
