More info

The grapes for the Estate Riesling come from the ‘Alluvia Vineyard’ in Gualtallary, Uco Valley. Situated at 1,350 metres above sea level, the subregion of Gualtallary is renowned for producing elegant and aromatic wines. The climate presents warm days and cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 12.5°C. This diurnal temperature swing encourages a long ripening period, producing a greater concentration of flavours in the grapes while retaining balancing acidity. The vines are cultivated using an espalier training method and are drip irrigated using melted snow-water from the mountains. The vines are grown in sandy soils with alluvial and calcareous stones. The vineyards at Doña Paula are managed sustainably.

The grapes were hand-picked during the first week of March. A very careful destemming and pressing process was carried out in order to protect the high quality of the grapes. A cool fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures of 12 to 15°C, preserving the purity of fruit.
