Bodegas Salentein
Jose Galante and Paul Hobbs are the dreamteam at Bodegas Salentein. Galente is one of the most distinguished winemakers in Argentina having spent 30 years at Bodegas Catena Zapeta making the wines that made Argentinian Malbec world famous.



Paul Hobbs on the other hand has been described by Forbes magazine as 'The Steve Jobs of Wine' and has been named 'Wine Personality of the Year' twice by Robert Parker!



The duo have vineyards at extreme altitudes from 1,050 to 1,700 metres above sea level in the Uco Valley, Mendoza's prime growing region. The wines produced there are round and fulsome - superb with a parrilla grilled steak.
Mendoza
Mendoza is by far the largest wine region in Argentina. Located on a high-altitude plateau at the edge of the Andes Mountains, the province is responsible for roughly 70 percent of the country's annual wine production. The French grape variety Malbec has its New World home in the vineyards of Mendoza, producing red wines of great concentration and intensity.



The province lies on the western edge of Argentina, across the Andes Mountains from Chile. While the province is large (it covers a similar area to the state of New York), its viticultural land is clustered mainly in the northern part, just south of Mendoza City. Here, the regions of Lujan de Cuyo, Maipu and the Uco Valley are home to some of the biggest names in Argentinian wine.



This soil in this region is alluvial with rocky subsoil. It possesses sediments of sand, silt and clay. Its little organic matter restraints the grapevine’s growth and this results in excellent quality grapes suitable for winemaking. Malbec wines from this area hold outstanding features; red and violet tones with great intensity.

Big Value

by - verified purchaser
With BBQ season coming up is there anything better than finding a bargain? The answer is no there is not!

Tried it blind, thought it was a very smart wine with acidity pointing to a $20+ wine. I found it juicy and fruity but not overweight. I imagine this will pair very well with food but was kind delicious on it's own.
