Malbec from Mendoza is unquestionably Argentina’s marquee variety, something that’s clear from this juicy example.
What You Need To Know
Basic Malbecs offer rich, supple blackberry flavors that make them terrific, easy-sipping barbecue wines. This example from the brothers Hugo and Eduardo Pulenta gets a layer of earthy complexity from a portion of grapes that come from vines nearly 4,000 feet above sea level, in Mendoza’s Uco Valley. That fruit gives the wine a juicy freshness and spicy notes that make it especially food friendly. Sons of pioneering winemaker Antonio Pulenta (and brothers to Carlos, who helms Vistalba winery), the Pulentas focus on estate-bottled wines made from hand-harvested grapes. La Flor represents their entrylevel tier, and gives a taste of their expertise at an everyday price.
