Pulenta Estate was founded in 2002 by brothers Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta, fourth-generation winemakers, with the goal of translating their family legacy and their father´s pioneering spirit into a modern, innovative winery focused on producing limited quantities of great wines. They have quickly carved out a reputation for precise, elegant wines across a range of varieties and premium price points. The estate consists of two vineyards located in key areas of Mendoza: Finca La Zulema in Agrelo and Viñedos Don Antonio in Los Arboles, a district of the Uco Valley. These contrasting vineyards have complex alluvial soils and distinct altitudes which, when blended, help give Pulenta wines their distinctive style, combining finesse, silky texture and elegance with the typical power and depth of fruit that is expected of Argentinian wines.
The grapes come from two blocks on the Finca La Zulema vineyard in Agrelo. The grapes are harvested by hand in two different vineyard passes of equal sizes, spaced fifteen days apart. The first harvest gives grapes with good acidity and freshness, whilst the second harvest gives richer and riper fruit.
The first harvest was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 14C for fifteen days, with one month spent on the fine lees and no malolactic. The second harvest was fermented in new French oak barrels, where the wine also underwent malolactic fermentation and a further nine month’s ageing, before blending and bottling
Wipe tropical fruit flavours are complemented by a fresher, citrussy element, whilst the oak gives toasted almond and coconut notes as well as texture and volume. The perfect combination of elegance and richness.
