Salentein Numina 750ml 2011    
Sku: 1862429*

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.

Tasting notes
Color - Deep ruby Bouquet - Scents of cassis, black cherries, spices and mint Taste - An intense and robust wine with elegant flavors of raspberries, blueberries, sweet spices and a long, lingering finish of vanilla

Wine maker notes
The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning and placed in 18 kg-plastic bins. Upon arrival in the winery, a cluster selection and soft de-stemming were performed, without breaking the berries. From there, they were placed in the tank, without using pumps, where cold maceration was performed at 8 C to 10 C for 5 days, with the berries virtually intact. After cold maceration, select yeasts were added and fermentation started in a controlled manner for 10 days. The must was pumped over and the cap was manually punched down very softly until the end of fermentation. Subsequently, maceration continued for 20 more days. After this stage, the wine was immediately racked to new and second-use French oak barrels, where malo-lactic fermentation took place.

Technical notes
70% Malbec, 30% Merlot

Food pairing
An ideal match for hard cheeses, hearty stews, pasta dishes, casseroles and grilled red meats.
