Salentein Primus Malbec, Uco Valley, Mendoza

Salentein Primus Malbec, Uco Valley, Mendoza

Intense, complex aroma of red and black berries, spices, such as clove and black pepper; the palate is full-bodied yet remarkably well-balanced with plenty of freshness to carry the fruit. The grapes are grown 1,150 metres above sea level on low-yielding vines in the Finca El Oasis vineyard. Fermented in French oak vats with manual ‘punching-down’ of the caps, then aged for 19 months in French oak; no fining was carried out.
