Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

A bright purple wine of great intensity and depth, with aromas of marked personality, in which the Malbec character is perfectly recognizable, with reminiscences of fresh and ripe plums, a touch of cherry and a touch of mint as seasoning; accompanied by slight spicy nuances and tobacco as a result of ageing in oak barrels. Its mouth-feel is very sweet and round. This complex Malbec offers flavors reminiscent of ripe red berries, with a fine concentration and the sweet tannins typical of the variety. The wine continues to reveal its structure and balanced acidity through its deliciously long finish.

Perfect match with Argentine local food including stews, barbecue and empanadas.

This wine may be stored for seven to nine years.

Critical Acclaim

"Lush, forward and complete, with a full mix of sweet and spicy aromas leading to bright berry flavors accented by licorice and vanilla from well-managed oak. Salentein is making better wines now than ever before, and this toasty, warming number is a prized bull that can only help Argentinean Malbec preserve its good name."
