Vinification Notes

The grapes are sourced from Dona Paula's estate owned vineyard, Finca el Alto in Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo. The vineyard is situated at 1,050 metres above sea level where the soil is nutrient-poor clay. The climate is characterised by warm days and cool nights with an average temperature variation of 14°C, this creates a long ripening period and helps to concentrate the flavours in the berries, while retaining balancing acidity. The vines are trained using the espalier trellis system and drip irrigation is used. The vineyard has always been managed using sustainable practices.
