About the Wine
This enjoyable white wine created by Salentein is produced in Mendoza. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Salentein. Salentein Barrel Selection Chardonnay is a delicious wine, made with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.

Salentein Estate in the Uco Valley has roots that extend back to the 17th century and The Society of Jesus. The goal of this award winning bodega, says Winemaker José Galante, ‘is to make exceptional wines while supporting the local people and community and encouraging local biodiversity.’ They gained ISO 14001 status in 2010 with vineyard management focused on sustainable viticulture practices such as natural fertilisers and 100% water recycling from the wineries.
Blessed with outstanding natural diversity, as well as a real desire to put sustainability at the heart of their winemaking, Argentia remains a committed and naturally exciting wine producing country.Explore Argentina
