The enological team at Doña Paula presents its 2021 mid-harvest report, announcing it will be an ideal vintage for its wines. With 85% of the harvest already done, the 2021 season presented great yields, with some vineyards achieving records in production, and with great quality in the grapes.

The season began with a frost in Mendoza, which affected mainly the more exposed areas. The rest of the season has been quite easy in terms of climate: the spring was a little bit warmer (0.6 °C) and the summer was cooler than usual (-1.3 °C) which makes this year a dream for winemaking.

The cool summer and autumn enabled a slow ripening process that allowed us to pick the grapes in the optimum time. The only drawback of the season was some insistent rains that we suffered in January and February that threatened the sanity of some white grapes. Fortunately, March and the beginning of April were dryer than usual, allowing for a peaceful harvest of the red grapes.

“At a provincial level, the estimates say that this year will be similar to 2020 in volume, which was 15 to 20% lower than the historic figures but, at the same time, with a great quality in general”, details Martin Kaiser, Head of Viticulture and Winemaking at Doña Paula.

Doña Paula has four vineyards located in the best winegrowing regions of Mendoza, Uco Valley, Ugartecha and Luján de Cuyo. In these vineyards, the quality that spans across Doña Paula’s wines is born, recognized worldwide.

As for the quality of the 2021 wines, the Doña Paula team highlights it will be a great year for whites, very aromatic, showing elegance and a good concentration.

In the case of reds, for those that have already been racked, they show a deep color, excellent varietal expression and mid to high concentration of fine tannins.
