Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts James Suckling April 2018
Plenty of oak in this earthy and plummy malbec, but it is way more structured on the palate than the rich nose suggests. The finish is long, delicately sweet and spicy. Drink or hold.
92 pts Wine Advocate Issue #228 Dec 2016
The top of the range, the Co-Fermented, had not changed vintage, so I only tasted the 2014 Malbec Reserva from José "Pepe" Galante's (Salentein's winemaker) personal project. 2014 was a warmer vintage compared with the average. The grapes, sourced from different zones of the Valle de Uco in the province of Mendoza (Eugenio Bustos, Vista Flores, Chacayes and Gualtallary), fermented in small cement vats with neutral selected yeast after a cold soak. The wine matured in 225-liter French oak barrels. There is a peachy quality to the nose, with hints of plums, violets and some spices, and it opens up with some time in the glass. There is something earthy, and it's balanced, with fine tannins and penetrating flavors. From this year they have added one vineyard in Gualtallary at some 1,400 meters and it surely helped compensate for the extra ripeness of the year. 50,000 bottles produced.
