Salentein Merlot Reserve 750ml 2010    
Sku: 1862431*

The grapes grow on alluvial, stony soils of the high elevation vineyards of the El Oasis estate (3,608 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.

Wine maker notes
100% of the grapes are hand-harvested and selected before undergoing a gentle de-stemming. From the selection table, the berries go directly to a 450 kg hopper, where they are received with dry ice to avoid oxidation, and then are transferred to stainless steel tanks, without the use of pumps. Alcoholic fermentation takes place for 10 days at a temperature of 79F-82F. Maceration continues for 15 days. The wine is then transferred to first, second and third-use French and American oak barrels (85% and 15%), where it ages for 12 months before bottling. It refines in bottle for six months prior to release.
