Salentein Portilo Chardonnay 2016 75CL X 3
The Salentein estate is as rich in history as in vineyard character. Land now planted to grapes once bore witness to great deeds and heroism. This goodwill was the work of the indigenous people, Jesuit missionaries who came to the region, and important historical figures, such as General San Martin. Finca San Pablo, one of the Salentein vineyards, has historical roots that reach back to the 17th century. In the past, the property was part of an estancia called De Arriba, which belonged to the Society of Jesus. In the heart of the finca, some 1,500 meters above sea level, lei the ruins of Casa Grande, an old farmhouse. Surrounded by a mature grove, the old house was built by the Jesuits, who had already begun developing viticulture practices at that time. José Galante was one of Argentina's Malbec pioneers. He worked at the renowned Catena Zapata for 34 years before leaving for Bodegas Salentein.
The colour is a bright greenish yellow. The nose is fruity with notes of minerals. In the mouth it is fresh, easy to drink, and it carries all the characteristics of this variety.
