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. The signature style of Pulenta is built on finesse, silky texture and elegant fruit character, while displaying the typical power and depth of fruit that is expected of Argentinian wines. Their range features youthful wines under the Bodega La Flor label.
The grapes for this wine come from from both Finca La Zulema and Viñedos Don Antonio vineyards. The grapes for the La Flor Sauvignon Blanc were hand-picked following three passes through the vineyard, ensuring optimal ripeness of the fruit. The wine then spent 3-5 months on its fine lees before bottling.
The La Flor Sauvignon is beautifully vibrant and fresh. On the nose there are citrus notes of lemon and pink grapefruit alongside riper, more tropical passion fruit. It has refreshing acidity on the palate with lime, pink grapefruit, passion fruit and pineapple and herbal back note; along with a linear, saline undertone which balances and gives poise.
