Winemaker's Notes:

This brilliant purple hued wine of great intensity and depth exudes personality with aromas of ripe plums, blackberries and a soft touch of vanilla and tobacco typical of aging in French oak barrels. With its complex mouth-feel, ripe red berry appeal and sweet tannins characteristic of this variety, the Salentein Malbec 2004 is a well-structured wine of balanced acidity and a long finish. This wine will age nicely for seven years.

About Bodegas Salentein:

These Estate wines come from the vineyards at La Pampa Estate, El Portillo Estate and San Pablo Estate, in the Upper Valley of the Uco, part of the Tupungato district, 120km south of Mendoza, nestling beneath the Andes. The vineyards are planted at between 1050 and 1500 metres above sea level in ideal micro climates, which produce perfect ripening conditions for the grapes.
