Winemaker's Notes:

Great intensity and depth enhance the beauty of this bright red hued wine. Redolent with spices and soft smoked meat, this character-rich wine also possesses notes of blackkberries and tobacco, as a result of ageing in French oak barrels. Its mouth feel is rounded at the start, highlighting ripe red fruits and the sweet tannins that are typical of the variety.

The 2003 Salentein Syrah has excellent structure and concentration, balanced acidity and a long finish. Recommended aging: Six to eight 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.
