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. 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

Deep red wine with bluish tints, and lively and stylish shades. Its great aromatic intensity is an expression of fruit, such as very ripe quince and wild barries, and spices, coupled with the tobacco and vanilla nuances contributed by French oak. It feels smooth and drinkable - a full-bodied, distinctly intense wine with superb structure, featuring ripe and sweet tannins, and a varietal of remarable structure and great agebility .

It is identified with the name of its founder. It is a blend of 40% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Shiraz from specially selected grapes from the region's best vineyards. Deep red colour with dark hues and comlex aromas combining red berries with vanilla and smoky notes, all elegantly balanced.
