Winemaker Notes

Intense violet color with blue hues. Coming from the Malbec blend from different vineyards it is very complex in the nose. Berries, floral aromas such as violets and plums outline this wine. In the mouth is a greatly concentrated wine, balanced and with good acidity. Due to its firm tannins it is an ideal wine to be aged in the bottle for a long time.

Blueberry, floral and light cedar character on the nose and palate. Medium body. Delicate finish. Drink now.

Doña Paula owns 700 hectares of vineyards in prime Mendoza sub-regions. This is a blend of the best low yielding, old-vine blocks on varied soils from Ugarteche in Luján de Cuyo, as well as Altamira and Gualtallary, all planted above 1,050m. It has good integration and balance of spicy oak, which doesn't mask the dense plum and mulberry fruit, and is enlivened by bright acidity and firm tannins. Drinking Window 2018 - 2024

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Along with the 2015 vintage, for comparison's sake, I also tasted the 2014 Selección de Bodega Malbec. The 2014 is the last vintage of this wine to be made with a mix of grapes from three different origins—Ugarteche, San Carlos and Gualtallary—as the following year (2015), they transformed it into a wine sourced exclusively from a single vineyard in Gualtallary. The differences are notable, and despite 2014 being a cooler vintage, the wine feels warmer and riper than the 2015 and also juicier, rounder and with more fruit. At the same time, I also feel the oak more marked here and some rusticity in the tannins.

Mendoza Wine


View all products

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

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.
