The grapes for this wine come from a combination of different blocks, carefully selected from specific Doña Paula's 10 year old vineyards, from our Finca El Alto Estate in Ugarteche.A selection of French clones such as 169 and high quality local mass material are used. Vines are cultivated in a vertical trellising system with high density and drip irrigation. Production ranges between 9 and 10 tn/ha.At Doña Paula the vineyards and wines have always been managed using Sustainable Agriculture practices. 100% hand picked grapes are completely distemmed 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 primar...

The grapes for this wine come from a combination of different blocks, carefully selected from specific Doña Paulas 10 year old vineyards, from our Finca El Alto Estate in Ugarteche.A selection of French clones such as 169 and high quality local mass material are used. Vines are cultivated in a vertical trellising system with high density and drip irrigation. Production ranges between 9 and 10 tn/ha. At Doña Paula the vineyards and wines have always been managed using Sustainable Agriculture practices. 100% hand picked grapes are completely distemmed and then partially crushed.

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. Total maceration period is 15 days.Natural malolactic fermentation takes place at 16°C. No press wine is added. Vintage: 2009 Region: Finca El Alto, Ugarteche, Luján de Cuyo Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Alcohol: 14% by vol. Acidity: 5,53 g/l (tartaric acid) Residual Sugar: 2,45 g/l pH: 3.66 Tasting Notes: This Cabernet Sauvignon shows an intense red color.

Our Los Cardos Malbec 2008 presents a typical violet-red color. Its aromas of fresh red and black fruits, berries, spices and cigar box announce a smooth and round wine in mouth.

This wine is one of our best examples of well integrated oak, where expression of fruit, elegance and richness are the main attributes. With a red violet color, the aromas of our Dona Paula Estate Cabernet Sauvignon2007 present black fruits, blackcurrant and bell pepper, combined with spice box and graphite notes in different layers. It is medium bodied, with fresh acidity and a pleasant finish.

The Dona Paula Estate Shiraz-Malbec 2008 presents a violet-blue color. On the nose it shows the particular plum character that comes from the Malbec and impressive spice notes, white pepper and red fruits from the Shiraz. It is sweet and has a pleasant mouth feel with fresh fruit acidity.

Polished and forward, driven by sweet currant and plum fruit layered with mocha and vanilla notes. Nice ripe, round finish. Drink now through 2008.

On the nose, this wine offers aromas of cherry, black currant and toasty oak. Full bodied and rich, with flavors of plum, leather and spice rounded out by smooth tannins; long, satisfying finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

At Doña Paula, they believe that wine should be a tru expression of the land. The conditions in Argentina’s Mendoza region are ideal, with unique terroir which allow winemakers to fulfil their dreams of creating sophisticated and immaculately structured wines. The Doña Paula Estate wines are wines of tremendous concentration and varietal character that result from the work, dedication and skill of the winegrowers and the passion, creativity and innovation of the wine makers. The wines are big-bodied and bold, yet lively, complex and elegant. The Estate Shiraz-Malbec is 60% Malbec 40% Syrah. A dark violet-blue color,it shows a disctinct plum character on the nose that comes from the Malbec and impressive spice notes, white pepper and red fruitfrom the Syrah. It is sweet and has a pleasant mouth feel with fresh fruit acidity. This is excellent with grilled or roast beef, venison or lamb.

Tasting Notes:

Per bottle label: With a deep and clean violet colour, this Malbec offers a particularly elegant and complex new world wine style. On the nose it combines raspberry, cassis, floral and spicy notes, along with mineral and smoke flavours. On the palate, it is rich and harmonious, with a lingering, fleshy finish.
