In the remote upper reaches of Argentina’s Uco Valley on the eastern slopes of the Andes, Bodegas Salentein produces a remarkable collection of wines from vineyards planted at some of the highest elevations on the planet.

Tasting notes
Color - Medium ruby. Bouquet - Ripe plums, cherries and blackberries are complemented by a hint of tobacco. Taste - A balanced and complex wine with flavors of redcurrants, black cherries and cinnamon.

Wine maker notes
100% of the grapes are hand-harvested and selected before undergoing a gentle de-stemming. From the selection table, the berries go directly to a 450 kg hopper, where they are received with dry ice to avoid oxidation, and then are transferred to stainless steel tanks, without the use of pumps. Cold maceration takes place for 5 days, at a temperature of 46F to 50F, with the berries nearly whole, in order to extract aroma and color. Alcoholic fermentation follows for 10 days at a temperature of 79F-82F and maceration continues for 15 more days. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels (first, second, and third use) where malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine ages in the barrels for 12 months before bottling, and is held in the cellar six months prior to release.

Technical notes
100% Malbec.

Food pairing
Well-matched with barbecued meats, robust pasta entrees, baked ham, pork chops and sharp cheeses.
