Pulenta Estate Pinot Gris 2021, Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina

Pulenta family has been involved in the Argentine viticulture for three generations. Sons of the well-known vine grower Antonio Pulenta and descendants from Italian immigrants, Eduardo y Hugo Pulenta, gave birth to this winery in 2002, providing experience and the most qualified labor. 100% Pinot Gris. Minimal leaf removal encourages delicate aromatics and prevents the skins from turning pink from overexposure. Berries picked at peak aromatic potential. After meticulous selection, clusters are destemmed and gently pressed, yielding a must with interesting pinkish hues. This is then carefully protected from oxidation with dry ice to retain and encourage the aromatics. Five hours of maceration at 40 degrees F for an intense aroma extraction. Low temperature fermentation with a careful fine lees management.
