James Suckling Releases High Scores for Doña Paula in Argentina Report
With more than 1,800 wines reviewed over the first months of the year, James Suckling alongside associate editor Zekun Shuai, published "More than Malbec: Argentina's Experiental Evolution", their report on the country's current wine scene.
The critic wrote"…it was one of our best tastings yet for this South American vinous powerhouse. With some of the finest terroirs being discovered, blessed by a few consecutively invigorating vintages, Argentina showed wall-to-wall excellence this year with its fast-advancing winemaking and terrific value that few countries can emulate. Not many countries have trodden this far down the path of great wine in such a short time".
知名葡萄酒評論家James Suckling和副主編Zekun Shuai在今年頭幾個月對1800多種葡萄酒進行審查，發表名為「不僅僅是馬爾貝克：阿根廷的經驗進化」報告，講述阿根廷葡萄酒現況。他寫到「對於這個南美洲葡萄酒強國來說，今年是我們迄今為止最好的品飲經驗。隨著發掘許多優質風土，加上連續幾年都是好年份加持，今年阿根廷憑藉其快速發展的釀酒技術和價值展現卓越的表現，這是很少國家能效仿的，因為並非很多國家都能在如此短的時間內，在偉大的葡萄酒之路上走這麼遠。”
Indeed, Doña Paula received high scores across all its categories. The high-end Los Indios Parcel 2018 received outstanding 95 points, highlighting its"Aromas of blackberry, rosemary, licorice, walnut and cedar.

The winery's icon, Doña Paula Selección de Bodega 2018, was awarded 93 points, with the critic commenting on its"Blackcurrant, blackberry, tobacco, mocha and lemon-zest aromas". It's medium-to full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Sleek and energetic.
