For lovers of Malbec (and we all know at least one) this may well be heaven.
The inky violet wine is just as powerful to taste as to look at. Blackcurrant and blackberry, teamed with black pepper, nutmeg and vanilla, absolutely burst through this wine, but the natural freshness always keeps a good sense of balance.
This is a benchmark of just how good Mendoza Malbec can be.
Pulenta is based in the heartland of Mendoza, where the rocky soils and high altitude slopes produce grapes with staggering flavour concentration. The vines are grown organically and then hand selected to ensure top quality fruit. The winemaking style is all about maximising flavour, from soaking the grapes early to extract fruit notes to 18 months ageing in oak to give toasty oak flavours.
