A 2012 Sauvignon Blanc from Mendoza, Argentina. Pale straw in color. Fruit hints of grapefruit and peach with a hint of limestone. It has a mid-finish on the palette and crisp acidity. Best served chilled to 48 degrees, and served with a grilled salmon dish.

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina and had the chance to taste this wine. This wine is amazing, and has one of the smoothest finishes I have ever experienced. For all the winos out there - this is a MUST try!

At Doña Paula our vineyards have been managed using Sustainable Agriculture practices.The grapes for this wine come from 44 acres planted between 2000 and in our Finca Los Cerezos Estate in Tupungato with some very well reputed French clones, grafted on three different rootstocks. All the stems of the grapes were removed. 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 5°C. 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 10°C. Vintage: 2009 Region: Finca El Alto, Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo Varietals: 100% Estate grown Chardonnay Alcohol: 14% Acidity: 6.34 g/l (tartaric acid) R/S: 1.53 g/l pH: 3.0 Notes: Our Dona Paula Estate Chardonnay is an eye-catching Golden Yellow colour Its mineral characters and tropical fruits aswell as pear and citrus notes make it complex and fresh on the palate.

At Doña Paula our vineyards have been managed using Sustainable Agriculture practices.The grapes for this wine come from 44 acres planted between 2000 and 2002 in our 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. All the stems of the grapes were removed. Reductive process using antioxidant sulfur dioxide and inert gas blanketing.

BRONZE MEDAL - Decanter World Wine Awards 2010 Finca El Alto is the largest single vineyard malbec estate in the Luján de Cuyo region in Argentina, with 197 hectares (487 acres) planted between 1969 and 1975. Most of the production comes from adult vines trellised in double spur pruned cordon at medium to high vine density (1852 to 3636 vines per hectare). Clay soils produce great structure in the wines and this is the aim of this Estate malbec: richness, elegance, balance and bright fresh fruit aromas, all of them, capable of expressing the Upper Mendoza river´s sense of place. At Doña Paula the vineyards and wines have always been managed using Sustainable Agriculture practices.Careful and gentle desteming with partial berry crushing provides the fresh red berry aromas.Cool pre-fermentation maceration is undertaken for 2 weeks to extract primary aromas, flavours and the intense colour under a non-alcoholic phase. Grapes : Malbec 100% Region : Argentina / Mendoza / Ugarteche Maker : David Bonomi Notes : Intense violet colour, plums, black cherries, licorice and dried herbs basket aromas in the nose. Sweet, round and ample in the mouth with a lingering finish. ABV : 14.1% by vol.

The 2010 Malbec comes from Dona Paula's vineyard in Altamira and Gualtallary and is aged in first, second and third use French barriques. It has an intense bouquet with dark plum, black olive and raspberry aromas that is almost over-powering. The palate is full-bodied with fleshy, supple tannins and copious blueberry and cassis fruit that lead to a "spherical" finish. This is a decent commercial Malbec at a decent price. Drink now. ** SOLD OUT **

White pepper and herb notes mark this tangy red, which offers juicy plum and crushed cherry flavors. A touch of smoke chimes in on the woodsy finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Golden yellow color. Citric and mineral aromas with notes of spices and tropical fruits. In the mouth, it is fresh, lively, with good acidity and balance.
