Dona Paula Estate Malbec 2021

The Dona Paula Malbec is a very different wine to the Paula Malbec. Both red wines are from the Dona Paula winery but the Estate Malbec is made to show the maximum expression of this grape variety. The Paula Malbec is a more feminine version and is made for everyday drinking. The Dona Paula Malbec is an intense red wine with a dark brooding colour and filled with equally dark flavours of plums, black cherries, sweet fruit and a sligh herbaceous finish.

Dona Paula was established in 1997 and began exporting to the Netherlands, the UK, and the US in 2002. The estate winery currently owns 703 hectares of vineyards throughout Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes. They have been perfecting their Malbec since their establishment, beginning with their first vineyard in Ugarteche. It has utilised sustainable agriculture and organic practises throughout its tenure. Dona Paula wines have won a number of awards against other Argentinian wineries and gained status among professional wine tasters for their superior wines. It has benefited from an increase in demand from the US, Europe, and around the world for Argentinian wines. Exports to the US alone tripled between 2002 and 2006. Dona Paula wines meet the elusive ideals of terroir, variety, and lower production costs, allowing them to produce sustainable estate wines and offer them at a wonderful value to their customers.

Vinification
Carefully and gentle desteming with partial berry crushing to provide fresh berry aromas. Cool pre-fermentation maceration for 2 weeks to extract primary aromas, flavors and intense color under non-alcoholic phase. First part of the fermentation takes place under wild yeast culture and is finished inoculating selected yeast. Fermented at 25C, keeping the freshness the wine is after racked to new, second and third use French barrels (33% of each one) where the wine is aged during 8 months before being bottled.

Viticulture
The Finca El Alton vineyard was planted between 1967 and 2007. Adult vines are trellised in the double spur pruned cordon method. The vines are planted with a medium to high density from 1,852 vines per hectare to 3,636 vines per hectare.

Tasting Note
The Dona Paula Malbec has an intense violet colour with aromas of plums, black cherries, liquorice and dried herbs . Sweet, round and generous in the mouth with a lingering finish.

Everyday Serving Suggestion

Always serve with Argentine steak for the maximum pleasure.

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.
