Salentein Malbec Reserve 2019

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis malbec comes primarily off their Uco Valley El Oasis vineyard (1050 – 1200m), with a smaller portion off their La Pampa estate (1250 - 1300m). This was fermented / macerated over 3 weeks prior to transfer to French and American oak casks for MLF and a year's rest. Rich and heady, with roasted espresso, crushed violets, ripe cassis, and savoury red cherry. Tannins are ample but sueded, hugging the dense fruit through a spice box finish. Quite regal, this dense wine shows well now with big grilled beef, but will reward with a little cellaring.Tasted: 04 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 24.99 select private retailers AB 19.99 select private retailers ON 15.99 LCBO Producer: Bodegas SalenteinDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
