Food Pairings for Bodegas Salentein Malbec
Bodegas Salentein is like a Hollywood film set, writes John Downes MW. “The solemn brick monolith is set on a vast plain of vineyards in the lap of the Andes. Stainless steel glistens within the lofty circular winery, and the amphitheatre below is temperature controlled to provide the perfect scene and environment for the myriad barriques”. The Estate wines, particularly the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, should be fantastic in a few years time. From twenty-five year old vines, wonderfully healthy grapes are transported to the most modern of wineries, fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in 60% new French oak barrels. The Malbec, aged for 12 months in French oak, has an intense burgundy colour with sweet aromas of raspberry and a subtle hint of aromatic herbs.
