These grapevines are espalier trained and drip irrigated with melt water. The yield is 10 tonnes per hectare. At Doña Paula, our vineyards have always been managed using sustainable agriculture practices.
The grapes are hand-picked during the day time, the first week of March. A very careful, protective destemming and pressing process is carried out. Fermentation takes place at low temperatures, between 12 and 15 °C (53.6 – 59 °F), in stainless steel tanks, to preserve the primary aromas.
