Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple, intense wine, with aromas of distinctive personality and varietal typicity, notably blackberries, and the floral scents of violets and vanilla. A sweet start of mouth, followed by an ample and intense feel in the mid palate, with a silky and rounded tannin texture. It stands out for its fruity character and the crispiness of its well-balanced acidity. A long and lingering finish, with the presence of sweet and fresh wooden flavors.

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.
