Dona Paula Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The Estate Sauvignon Blanc from Dona Paula is a delightful white wine from the Mendoza Region of Argentina. Despite vintage issues with rain Dona Paula have excelled yet again in producing a lovely Sauvignon Blanc which pays tribute to the unique terrior of this region. This white wine is delightful when served with creamy chicken dishes and is also a great wine to drink on it's own.

Producer Note

Doña Paula is a leading, modern winery at the forefront of exploring and investing in new, high quality wine regions in Argentina. First established in 1997, they own all of their vineyards covering 700 hectares. These vineyard sites are located in the best sub-regions within Mendoza including Ugarteche, Altamira, Gualtallary and Tupungato. They practice sustainable methods in the vineyards, maximising the true expression of terroir.

Their continuous innovation in terms of vineyard management ensures top quality wines from one year to the next.

Vintage

2015 was a warm and wet vintage, unusual for this normally dry climate. Rain was a major factor during the harvest and so the harvest timing became crucial. Many were brought in early, to maintain the quality of the fruit.

Vineyard

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. The yield is eight tonnes per hectare.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked during the first week of March. Destemming and pressing are gently carried out, followed by pellicular maceration during which the skins imbue the must with their varietal characteristics.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures of between 12°C to 15°C in order to preserve the primary aromas.

TastingNote

Intense aromas of wild mint, grapefruit and white currant leap out of the glass,a fresh, concentrated and well balanced Sauvignon with a persistant finish.

Serving Suggestion

Serve chilled as an aperitif, or the perfect match for chicken with light creamy sauces, salads, seafood, scallops and oysters

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
