DONA PAULA ESTATE MALBEC MENDOZA UCO VALLEY

This is a very lovely and beautifully elegant new Malbec from the famed Dona Paula estate. This high altitude wine is brimming with the variety characters and fruit purity that can only be achieved in this region. The nose is intense with black cherries, plum, tobacco and cedar.

On the palate the fruit takes the lead, with plum, blackberry and licorice. Round and soft tannins, finish off what is a really lovely wine. Great value!
 



Luiz Gutierrez for RobertParker.com - 89/100

The 2017 Estate Malbec is mostly from their Alluvia estate vineyard in Gualtallary, with 10% of the grapes coming from El Cepillo in the San Carlos department. The uncrushed grapes fermented with neutral yeasts, and then it aged in used French barriques for ten to 12 months. When tasting this next to some 2016s, you really notice the difference in ripeness in the vintage; this 2017 is riper and has darker fruit, even though the alcohol is a contained 13.5%. Although this is a varietal wine, it's really a large blend, as the different zones are fermented separately in concrete vats, matured in used oak barrels and then blended after the élevage. The palate is soft and tender, approachable and tasty. 480,000 bottles produced. I tasted some of the components from the different soils, and the differences were amazing—on the nose, but especially on the palate.
