In the remote upper reaches of Argentina’s Uco Valley 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 (Sah-len-tyne) 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. Bodegas Salentein is a wine destination like no other. 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 relaxed retreat into nature), and the landmark Chapel of Gratitude, a non-denominational chapel of ascetic loveliness, built using ancient local stonework techniques. Production Area Valle de Uco, Mendoza - Argentina. Grape Varieties 100% Chardonnay. Vinification 100% of the grapes are hand-harvested and immediately transported to the winery. Whole clusters of berries go through a pneumatic press to help facilitate separation from the skins. The juice is then cooled to 46°F and is left to rest for 24 to 48 hours. The juice is racked and separated from the lees. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels at a temperature of 64°F-68°F and partial malolactic fermentation is performed to achieve natural and balanced acidity. The wine spends some time aging on the lees before it is bottled. Color Light lemon. Bouquet Lovely aromas of fresh citrus fruits, pineapple and toasty oak. Taste Generous and round flavors of green apple and lemon complemented by subtle tropical notes and refreshing acidity. Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions An ideal match for fish, chicken, roasted pork, stuffed turkey and roasted vegetables.

Reserve Chardonnay 2011 - 88 points, Wine Advocate/ It has a well-defined bouquet with light honey tones, complemented by apricot blossom, almond and a hint of mango. It is well-defined and gains volume with just a few swirls. The palate offers a lightly buttered entry. It has a pleasing fatness in the mouth, with generous doses of almond and hazelnut towards the creamy finish.

Reserve Chardonnay 2011 - 91+ points, i-winereview.com/ This is an exceptional Chardonnay, especially for the price, with more Burgundian than New World breeding in it. It’s fresh with citrus, flint and passion fruit notes on the nose and a bright, layered palate that fills the mouth. Barrel fermentation and six months on the lees with battonage give weight and roundness to the palate but none of that disjointed sweet oak that mars so many New World Chardonnays. Very, very highly recommended.

Production Area Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina The grapes grow on alluvial, stony soils in the high elevation vineyards of the El Oasis estate (3,609 feet above sea level) and the La Pampa estate (4,101 feet above sea level). The handling of the canopy is based on a perfect balance of shade and sunlight, allowing each grape to reach optimum ripeness.
