Winemaker's Notes:

Our Doña 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.

About Dona Paula:

Located in Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza Argentina, Dona Paula is an estate winery, producing wines from Dona Paula's own vineyards in the winegrowing regions of Mendoza. Dona Paula's history began in 1990, when a period of exhaustive research on the different Argentinean terroirs and their potential to fully express each varietal began. Dona Paula acquired its first vineyard in 1997 in Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo, a region in the foothills of the Andes Mountains that is famous for its Malbec. In 2002, Dona Paula began exporting into the US, UK and the Netherlands, and is now one of the leading Argentinean wineries that exports premium wines; with 97% of the winery's production exported to more than 60 countries.
