Vineyards. The vines that produce our Doña Paula Rosé de Malbec are planted on poor clay soils with round stones at the Finca El Alto in Ugarteche, Luján de Cuyo. The vineyard is trellised to vertical shoot position, drip irrigated, and yields are 7–10 tons per hectare. The vineyard is located 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) above sea level and is characterized by hot days and cold nights with a daily temperature oscillation of 14ºC (25.2ºF) and an average annual precipitation of 250 mm (9.84 inches). The Doña Paula vineyards are always managed according to sustainable agricultural practices.
Vinification: The grapes were picked during the first two weeks of February to maintain the freshness and pronounced acidity. The grapes were gently pressed in a pneumatic press, and the must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 15º (59ºF) over the course of 15–20 days.
