James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2017)
Very attractive and ripe dark plums and blackberries on the nose here with a super fresh array of sleek, fresh tannins, bathed in fruit and there’s a long, rich red-plum and cherry core. Smooth and very elevated into the finish. Impressive.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2017)
The varietal 2017 Malbec was cropped from a warm and dry year after some cooler and wetter vintages, a year of low yields after some frost. It mixes grapes from Agrelo and Los Árboles and fermented in a combination of stainless steel, concrete and oak with selected yeasts. It matured in French barriques, 20% of them new, for nine to 12 months, depending on the lot. 2017 was a warmer year compared with 2018 and 2019, and this wine shows a little riper but without excess. In a warmer year, they might use a little more fruit from the Valle de Uco to compensate the natural conditions of the vintage. It has an expressive nose, open and complex. This is selected from lower-yielding plots, and they are very careful with the oak so it doesn't mark the wines too much. It keeps the elegant and traditional house style. 120,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 92 Points (2016)
The Pulentas’ Malbec is always a blend of Uco Valley and Agrelo grapes, combining the perfume and acidity of the former with the plushness of the latter. This rose petal-scented, sweetly textured number handles its 50% new oak with ease, finishing with appealing freshness and zip. 2018-24. Alcohol: 14.5%

In color, the wine is an attractive, intense red with dark tones. It expresses fruit notes of plum, cherry, and dark fruits, with several spices like thyme, oregano, and black pepper, given by some of the components of the blend, which make the wine delicate and complex. On the palate it is elegant but structured, with a persistent finish making it a wine hard to forget.

Intense gold in colour with tints of green. On the nose this wine is intense and complex with aromas of citrus and grapefruit typical of Torrontes. Delicate and silky on the palate with great freshness and crisp acidity on the distinctly mineral finish.
