The wines we have selected for June 2017, Salentein’s Portillo Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec hail from the Valle de Uco, a sub-appellation of Mendoza, Argentina. The goal of Bodegas Salentein is clear: to produce first-rate wines, committed with the earth where they come from. During its preparation, Salentein respects nature and, at the same time, takes part in the life of the area’s community, because the people become an essential component that reflects in the wine expression. Portillo wines take their name from the historic mountain passage that connects the Andes with the Uco Valley, traversed by San Martín in its liberating deed, and then by the scientist Charles Darwin. Today, Portillo is also the best way to access through the wine to the fascinating terroir of Uco Valley. Portillo, a young and distinguished wine, which expresses in each one of its fresh varietals, the color, the aromas, and a special flavor given by Bodegas Salentein’s tradition, with a personal and unique style.

2016 Portillo Malbec
100% Malbec, this wine shows bright and intense purplish, red color. In its fruity nose, fresh red fruit (plum and blackberry) stand out without cooked or marmalade aromas. In the mouth, its entry is fresh thanks to its natural acidity, fruity sensation, round, ripe tannins and sweet finish. Balanced and intense wine with clear varietal character, this wine will pair well steaks and hard cheeses. $7.99

2016 Portillo Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc, this white wine displays a yellow color with strong greenish hues. It gives off a fruity nose with outstanding aromas of white peach and grapefruit. In the mouth, it is a mild wine with very strong acidity, which makes it very fresh with middle caudalie, or length of finish. Enjoy this wine on its own, or pair with fresh garden salads, with white fish, or lightly seasoned poultry. $7.99
