Bodegas Y Viñedos Hugo Y Eduardo Pulenta Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo Estate 2008

Member Review by Argovino:

A lighter and less concentrated selection, bucking the trend for Mendoza cabernet, this wine begins with a vegetal bouquet of white asparagus and bell pepper. In the mouth it's smooth, tart, and clean, with sweet apple flavors riding on red currants - the product of some very specific winemaking choices, and an intriguing alternative to blockbuster cabernets. A good match for soy-based Asian dishes. (AV 89, http://argovino.com/?p=1327)

Personality, reliability and quality are the tree key words that define our commitment. The quality of a great wine inevitably depends on the excellence of the raw material. The productivity and age of the vines are key factors in achieving a fine product. The fact that different places have different soils, slopes, orientations and microclimates means that we can obtain grapes with characteristics that also differ widely. Each variety is processed separately, before being mixed in the exactly the right proportions. Our extensive knowledge and experience of wine-making in the region ensures that at our winery only the finest grapes are used for the finest wine.Our winery is located in Arganza, a town with a longstanding vine-growing and wine-making heritage, and nestled in the extraordinarily beautiful landscape of the "Bierzo Region". An area with its own inimitable accents that make it stand apart from any other wine-producing region in the Iberian Peninsula. A modern building houses everything needed for the processing of our grapes. While the casks in which we age our wines silenty sleep in a sturdy stone farmhouse Read less
