Winemaker Notes

Intense violet color. In the nose, aromas of black fruits, violets and spices. Mineral and graphite notes. Great balance and freshness in the mouth, with good concentration and medium structure. Soft tannins and persistent finish. Food Pairing Sirloin strip steak, chimi-churri butter, French fries with herbs and roasted tomatoes. A pairing par excellence! And when it comes to preparing it, simplicity makes this dish even more exquisite.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TA 91
Tim Atkin

Containing much more Gualtallary fruit than the 2017 release (85% to be precise), this is an intense, deeply coloured Malbec with impressive focus, hints of graphite and wild herbs, red berry fruit and a long, refreshing finish. 2021-26

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Eighty-five percent of the grapes for the 2018 Estate Malbec come from their Alluvia estate vineyard in Gualtallary and the remaining 15% are sourced from Finca Los Indios in El Cepillo in the San Carlos department, all in the Valle de Uco. 2018 was an average and dry year with very healthy grapes that fermented in concrete and matured in used barrels for ten months. The wine is elegant and floral, clean and varietal, with a soft palate with round tannins and good balance. Very good value. 450,000 bottles produced.

Dona Paula  Los Cardos Vineyard  Winery Image

Established in 1997 in Mendoza, Argentina, Doña Paula is an Estate winery that produces premium wines from the best regions of Argentina, using 100% Estate grown fruit. 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. The thorough care for details in the vineyards guarantees a constant quality that shows the clearest expression of each terroir. Vineyards are managed using sustainable agricultural practices, and all wines are vegan friendly and gluten free.

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
