The winery secured four Silver medals across its ranges at the international competition, while also obtaining a Bronze.
The International Wine & Spirit Competition, which celebrates its 50th anniversary on this edition, awarded five medals to Doña Paula. The winery obtained accolades in its different lines: 1350 2017, Selección de Bodega 2016 & 2017, and Alluvia Parcel 2017 achieved Silver. In addition, Estate Malbec 2018 received a Bronze medal.
On the 2016 Selección de Bodega, which achieved 94 points, the tasting note reads: “This seductive Malbec offers silky black fruits, cinnamon, liquorice and spcice. Very drinkable, with oak adding complexity to the lingering finish”. On the other hand, the 2017 vintage of Selección de Bodega with 90 points was described as “plush dense fruit to the fore but made in a very elegant style. The oak is well integrated, and there are layers of savoury spice notes on the fresh and focused finish”.
Doña Paula Alluvia Parcel 2017 received 92 points, “This is personified by freshness and vibrancy. There is a mouthful of muscovado sugar, herbs and spice on the dense and well-structured palate. A beautiful Malbec”, reads the review.
Lastly, 1350 2017 from the Altitude Blends range was awarded 90 points “A very good expression of the variety. A rich and ripe nose leads to a concentrated and powerful palate of bramble fruits, supported by grippy tannins”.
The aim of the IWSC is to award excellence in international wines and spirits worldwide, encouraging recognition for quality products, with over 400 global experts judging the awards for seven months of the year.
