Description

  • Dry style
  • Black pepper
  • Black fruit
  • Gentle tannins

Deep ruby red colour. Expressive and spicy in the nose, with aromas of black pepper, graphite and cassis. In the mouth, black fruit and gentle tannins are perceived. A wine with a long and elegant finish.

El Alto Vineyard is located in Ugarteche, in the southen part of Jujan de Guyo, at 1,050 meters above sea level. The soils range from sandy loam to clay loam, with variable content of stone. The climate typically presents warm days and cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 14ºC and an average annual rainfall of 250mm. The vines yield 10 tons per hectare, and they are grown in espaliers, using drip irrigation. At Doña Paula, their vineyards have always been managed using sustainable agricultural pracitices.

The grapes are harvested in late March and early April. In the winery, they are first destemmed and softly crushed. A cold pre-fermentative maceration takes place to preserve the primary aromas. Then, the must is cooled and traditional fermentation starts. Post-fermentation maceration lasts between 10-15 days. After that, malolactic fermentation is carried out.
