Selección de Bodega Malbec comes from Alluvia vineyard, located in Gualtallary, Uco Valley, at 1,350 meters above the sea level. is head-pruned vineyard is set on the streambed, its soil contains medium-size alluvial rocks covered with calcium carbonate patinas and intermingled with sand and chalk enamel. It is one of the poorest soils as regards nutrients, its organic matter is almost 0 and it has a great drainage capacity. e weather is cool during the days and cold during the nights. In Doña Paula we have always worked on our vineyards using sustainable agricultural practices.
We do a hand-harvest in plastic boxes with a 20-kilos capacity from the end of March until the beginning of April. A Doña Paula-style pre-fermentative maceration takes place in cold to preserve the primary aromas. The alcoholic fermentation is made with native yeast at a low temperature. The aging takes place in 50% new French oak barrels for 20 months.
