2016 PURAMUN RESERVA VALLE DE UCO MALBEC

$29.99 $29.99

Jose “Pepe” Galante was the head winemaker at Catena Zapata, one of Argentina’s paramount producers, from 1976 to 2010, and his wines helped put Argentina on the up-and-coming list of great wines from the New World. Pepe founded Puramun in 2010 as his first venture into a small, family-owned wine operation in the Valle de Uco in Mendoza, known for producing some of Argentina’s most concentrated, structured, and elegant Malbecs.

Puramun means ‘harvest’ in the native Mapuche language of the region and highlights the unique set of conditions that define each vintage. The wine team harvested the 2016 fruit from vines averaging 18 years of age at an impressive 4,300 feet elevation, resulting in deep complexity and intensity of flavors and aromas with fresh acidity and velvety tannins.

2016 PURAMUN RESERVA VALLE DE UCO MALBEC

"The sleek, polished and elegant 2016 Malbec Reserva mixes Malbec grapes from different locations within the Valle de Uco, Pampa El Cepillo, Campo Los Andes, Chacayes and Gualtallary in the Valle de Uco. The wine is floral, aromatic, nuanced and complex, very pleasant and with a soft texture and resolved tannins, ready to drink. It has the freshness of the vintage and the cooler place within Mendoza. It’s very classical and was aged in barrique for one year before it was bottled. Delicious…

"Full plum and berry aromas are inviting and offer just a hint of oaky vanilla. A fresh palate is braced by high-energy acidity that renders this Malbec zesty in feel. A quick blast of red berry and currant flavors stays juicy and bright through the finish. Drink through 2023.”
92 Points
"A brambly array of fresh red fruit with a gently leafy edge, too. The palate has a smooth-honed feel with lighter, fleshy red-plum and berry flavors, set amid dusty tannins. Drink now.”
