Pulenta Estate has been making wines in Argentina for three generations and is today owned and run by the two brothers Hugo and Eduardo. Situated in Alto Agrelo in Mendoza, the main wine producing region of Argentina, Pulenta’s vineyards are planted up to 980 metres above sea level. At this high altitude the vines enjoys hot days tempered by cool nights- offering the wines both concentration but also refreshing acidity. The irrigation comes from melted snow water from the Andes Mountains, a completely organic operation. The Pulenta brothers are dedicated to producing excellent wines with real class and distinction. Pulenta Gran Cabernet Franc is one of Argentina’s most lauded wines, and an excellent advert of what the country can achieve with this underrated variety. Deep ruby in colour, with intense aromas of blackcurrant, roasted pepper, eucalyptus and spice. On the palate, a sweet and smooth delivery of blackcurrant and plums is complimented by herbal varietal notes along with an elegant seasoning of spicy, toasty oak. A simply perfect wine that is delicious to enjoy now or over the next seven years.
