Doña Paula Selección de Bodega Malbec Alluvia Vineyard 2016

Gualtallary, Tupungato, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaDona Paula Seleccion de Bodega Malbec is the flagship estate malbec made from only the finest plots. It is native fermented and aged in new French oak barriques for 24 months. The nose and palate are intense with notes of earthy back cherries, wet stones, and florals. Dry and complex, this is the real thing. The structure and elegance are a delight to encounter. The fruit comes off the famed Alluvia Vineyard in Gualtallary, 1,350 meters above sea level. The vines are head pruned and grow out of a rocky, ancient stream bed, hence the strong mineral connection. Open, decant, and wait for this beautiful wine to unfold throughout the evening.Tasted: 01 April 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 47.99 select private retailers AB 38.50 select private retailers Producer: Doña Paula EstateDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
