"A blend of grapes from Agrelo (La Zulema) and Los Árboles in the Valle de Uco (Don Antonio), the Pulenta Estate 2016 Malbec fermented with selected yeasts in a mixture of concrete, oak and stainless steel vats and aged for nine to 12 months in French barriques, 25% of them new (down from 50% in 2014). The grapes had to be harvested earlier in 2016 because it rained so much that there was a risk of rot, and as a result, the wines have more freshness. The oak has also been reduced, and they are increasing the amount of grapes from the Valle de Uco. The wine feels very harmonious and clean, with very integrated oak and has floral and fruit aromas, fine tannins and a serious mouthfeel. There is great balance between seriousness and approachability. 120,000 bottles produced. Drink: 2022-2028. 91 points

Pulenta Estate is the name of the project created in 2002 by brothers Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta. They have 135 hectares of vineyards in Agrelo and 402 in Los Árboles in the Valle de Uco. Their yearly production is 900,000 bottles."
