In the remote upper reaches of Argentina's Valle de Uco 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. From this lofty outpost, 65 miles south of the bustling city of Mendoza, Argentina's winemaking capital, Bodegas Salentein has forged an international reputation for its fine wines. Each year, growing numbers of curious wine lovers are drawn to this spectacular location, intent on discovering and experiencing the beauty and ethos of Bodegas Salentein for themselves. Established in the late 1990s, Salentein is a privately-owned estate of almost 5,000 acres, of which 1,124 acres are planted to vine. The property includes a world-class winery and cellars, a 125-acre nature preserve, the showpiece Killka Center for Culture and the Arts, a nearby lodge (the Posada Salentein, offering an elegant and relaxing retreat into nature), and the landmark Chapel of Gratitude, a non-denominational chapel of ascetic loveliness, built using ancient local stonework techniques.


Grapes wer sourced from selected parcels of the El Oasis estate vineyards, planted in 2003 and situated at 1,100 metres above sea level. VINTAGE

Winemaking & Aging

Cold maceration was performed at 46-50°F for approximately 3-4 days. Fermentation developed at a controlled temperature between 78°–84°F for 8-12 days. Remontages was performed. The wine continued to macerate for 6-7 days. After racking, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation with 60% of the wine transferred to oak barrels (80% French, 20% American) and aged for 12 months. The blance of the wine was transferred to stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red. Aromas of blackcurrant and plum, mingled with notes of black pepper, red bell pepper and eucalyptus. Well-structured palate with fruity notes and a pleasant lingering finish.
