MENDOZA, MZ 5500

In 1997, the Claro Group from Chile decided to expand its wine business into Argentina to continue the group’s tradition of producing world-class wines. The conditions in Argentina’s Mendoza region contained the ideal and unique terroir which allow winemakers to fulfil their dreams of creating sophisticated and immaculately structured wines. The Claro Group’s first investment in the Argentine was to acquire the Ugarteche Estate. The estate encompassed approximately 140 hectares (346 acres) of old Malbec and Chardonnay vines, a requisite for producing a deep and balanced wine in the short term. The following year, the expansion continued and Tupungato Estate was obtained. The newly bought estate aided in giving the winemakers of Doña Paula a multi-faceted platform to work off. The underlying conditions showed a remarkable potential for delivering fresh, aromatic wines with high acidity, which were perfectly suited for short-cycle varieties. It took two years for the planting Read more »

    Lovely, savory floral aromas of violets, black pepper and cinnamon. Juicy and full bodied on the palate - full of blackberries, black currant, licorice, cinnamon and clove. Warming finish with a bit of dark chocolate. Read More

  • Doña Paula Torrontés Cafayate Estate 2011

    Getting a lot of oregano and herbal notes on the nose which blends very nicely with the minerality and the fruit. Lots more fruit on the palate - stone and tropical fruits, well balanced with fresh acidity and a silky finish. Read More

  • Doña Paula Malbec Selección de Bodega 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The bouquet is almost undetectable, with the faintest aromas of smoke and wood. In the mouth theres a mix of tart and bitter flavors reminiscent of fresh blackberries, though without much refinement; youd expect more from what some once called the finest wine in Argentina. The star is the long, warm, layered finish. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?... Read More

  • Doña Paula Torrontés Cafayate Estate 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Deep golden color and mild notes of lychee and mango in the bouquet herald a restrained wine with a delightfully clean finish; this is the varietal at its most dignified. Open at least half an hour before serving. (AV 89, http://argovino.com/?p=181) Read More
