Doña Paula Estate Malbec

Doña Paula Estate Malbec 2018

Gualtallary, Tupungato, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaDarting dark florals and a smouldering bacon rule this malbec, grown at the high altitude at Finca Alluvia in Gualtallary (Tupungato, Uco Valley) and Finca Los Indios in Altamira (San Carlos, Uco Valley). Ten months in French barrique certainly contribute to the structure and smoky sultriness, though the plush, ripe blueberry, plum, and cassis fruit override that, well absorbing any wood aggression. As intended, this big red is meant for equally sized BBQ meats or veg.Tasted: 04 August 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.99 BCLS AB 15.99 private wine shops ON 16.99 LCBO QC 17.99 SAQ NS 17.99 NSLC MB 20.99 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online SK 20.00 Producer: Doña Paula EstateDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
