Bodegas Salentein Malbec Reserve 2005

External Review by Salute! Wine Market:

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.

The magnificent bodega, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps. Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system. The four wines converge in a circular central chamber.which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples. Read less
