Bodega Salentein:
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.

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

Winemaker's Notes:"This fresh and delicious Sauvignon Blanc offers delicate aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit and other tropical and citrus flavors. In the mouth, the wine is refreshing and lasting, with vibrant acidity."

Lemony fresh, and fragrant with a crisp natural acidity that's bright and clean as a cool mountain stream in springtime.

Honest Sauvignon aromas of citrus and grapefruit set out the welcome mat. The palate follows suit with varietally correct grapefruit and lime flavors, while the finish shows club soda and other drying aspects. Not a world-beater but a pleasing wine.

The nose is slightly more vegetal than ideal, but in the mouth there is both good acids and body. Flavors of baked apples and dried mangoes seem sweet, and that's because residual sugar is present.

Topical fruit aromas give way to refreshing citrus notes, like juicy pink grapefruit, in this fresh and delicate wine with naturally balanced acidity and supple, soft finish.
