Doña Paula shines in the Global Malbec Masters

Doña Paula Parcel Alluvia 2017 achieved the top prize, being named Master in the category £50+.



The Global Malbec Masters of the UK, is one of the most relevant competitions in the world for the variety, conducted by The Drinks Business. After this year’s event, editor Patrick Schmitt MW published the best Malbecs of the contest, selecting Doña Paula Parcel Alluvia 2017 with the top award, the title of Master.

“But we also had a Master at this top end for a delicious Malbec from Doña Paula, capturing the quality of grapes from its Alluvia parcel of vines at 1,350m above sea level in Gualtallary in the Uco Valley”, commented the editor. “Made in one of the coolest climates for Malbec in Argentina, this is a wine with masses of concentration, loaded with pure, intense black fruit, some bright red berries, notes of cigar box, and a tight dry tannin texture. It is an impressive, powerful red without the alcohol heat and sweetness that can beset such a wine style”, he added.

“And it is another example of why Argentina is still the benchmark for varietal Malbec – it manages to pack so much colour, flavour and energy into its wines”, Schmitt ended.

In addition, Selección de Bodega 2017 and Estate Malbec 2019 were awarded with Silver medals, displaying the consistency of Doña Paula wines across its different categories.
