Pulenta Estate Pinot Gris XIV 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: From the premium vineyards of Alto Agrelo (Alto indeed at a mere 980 metres,<br/>the snow-capped Andes in sight) in the fashionable Lujan de Cujo enclave of<br/>Mendoza, Pulenta's take on Pinot Gris, and an extremely impressive one it is<br/>too. An almost Alsatian richness greets the nose, with peach, flint and smoky<br/>bacon all evidenced. The palate has all the viscosity and texture that one so<br/>often relishes in the best examples from this variety, with plenty of New World<br/>richness, but fine definition born out of both the impressive altitude of the<br/>vineyard and the careful winemaking; flowers, fruit and a hint of natural<br/>sweetness complete the picture. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
