Winemaker's Notes

"Funded by a Dutch investor with projects in tourism and farming, overseen by Carlos Pulenta, former head of Trapiche, and advised by enologist Michel Rolland, Salentein has quickly risen to the top level of Argentine wine since its introduction in 1999. Check out the malbec for proof: This is no forced blockbuster, but an elegant red. At first it's just winningly soft, with plumy flavor; then tannin infuses the wine with a licorice-like spice, keeping it bright, fresh and long. Though it will doubtlessly get better with time, I'd have a hard time not drinking it now."
-Wines & Spirits

Twelve months of French oak ageing softened the tannins of this classic varietal, and enhanced its delicate flavours.

The aroma and flavour of ripe plums are predominant in this wine. Its violet-red color will intensify over time.
