More info

The grapes are sourced from two vineyards: Alluvia Vineyard, which is located in Gualtallary, Tupungato, Uco Valley, at 1,350 metres above sea level; and the Los Cerezos Vineyard which is located in the Cordon del Plata mountains, Tupungato, Uco Valley, at 1,000 metres above sea level. The climate typically presents warm days and cool nights with an average temperature variation of 14°C. It is this diurnal temperature variation, which extends the ripening period, balances the crisp acidity while producing complex flavours in the grapes. The average annual rainfall is low at 280 mm. At Doña Paula, the vineyards have always been managed using sustainable agriculture practices. The combination of loamy, sandy, rocky and well drained soils with an exhaustive selection of the best French clones, result in this premium example of Sauvignon Blanc.
