2017 MALBEC, Pulenta. Mendoza, Argentina

Bin:  605

Alcohol percentage:  14.5%


The 135 hectare estate is located in Alto Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo. Like all the best Argentine vineyards they are high (average 980m), thus getting a big diurnal temperature range, helping the wines retain freshness and balance.
This wine is a blend of a Luján de Cuyo vineyard and another in the Uco Valley

Grape variety:

100% Malbec matured in French oak (half new oak) for 12 months


The Pulenta family has been involved in the Argentine viticulture for three generations. Eduardo and Hugo Pulenta are currently holding the reins

Old Bridge rating:

A rare example of (genuinely) top quality Malbec. Too many are too heavy and oaky, whereas this has bright, red fruit aroma, combined with richness, ripeness and a creamy texture. The whole package is as self-confident and impressive as the bottle itself

Food match:

Do the Argentinians eat anything other than char-grilled steak? Apparently not – but that’s only one option for this wine. Almost any red meat will be flattered, with partridge and pheasant also happily matched
