Winemaker Notes

The Salentein Malbec was cultivated in vineyards on El Portillo Estate, located at 3,937 feet above sea level on alluvial, stony soils of excellent permeability and low organic matter content. The handling of the canopy is based on a perfect balance of shades and sunlight through clustering and leaves, to preserve the character of a mature wine. Balanced vines supported on bilateral cordon trellis, with a low plant yield, efficient drip irrigation and optimum maturity, leading to the distinctive Salentein style.

A bright violet color with shades of ebony, this stunning wine boasts intensity and depth in the glass. Aromas of fresh, ripe plums, cherries and spice are complemented by a hint of tobacco from aging in oak barrels. 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. This wine may be stored for seven to nine years.

Notes of fig and cinnamon fill this malbec with appealingly sweet flavor. In the midst of that sweetness, a sharp acidity emerges to lend it refreshing balance. For braised beef.

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.
