Salentein Reserve Malbec 2008, ahora en botella magnum 1,5L.

Salentein Reserve Malbec 2008, ahora en botella magnum 1,5L.

Se trata de un revolucionario concepto en vinos de guarda ya que para esta edición se mantuvo una partida limitada de botellas dentro de la cava subterránea de la bodega en el Valle de Uco donde las condiciones son perfectas para una evolución lenta y equilibrada de un vino de excepción.

Salentein Reserve Malbec 2008 ha recibido premios a nivel internacional, muestra de ello son la medalla de oro que recibió en el Decanter World Wine Awards 2010 y medalla de oro en Mundus Vini 2010.

Este concepto de guarda en botellas Magnum proviene de una tradición europea y Bodegas Salentein la mantiene desde hace muchos años, exportando sus grandes exponentes de Malbec del Valle de Uco al viejo continente. Hoy presenta en Argentina una edición exclusiva de Salentein Reserve Malbec 2008 de una cosecha de Malbec excepcional y reconocida internacionalmente, que fue celosamente guardada por más de 5 años en la cava subterránea para ser disfrutando en la actualidad o para seguir añejándolo por al menos 3 a 5 años más.

El vino se distribuirá exclusivamente en las principales vinotecas de todo el país y tiene un precio de 220 pesos argentinos.

Malbec Bargains

In his e-zine “Winophilia”, wine critic and expert Stephen Tanzer spotlighted and wrote about the Argentine Malbecs he tasted at his last annual tasting of Argentine wines.

At the very high end, Argentina produces some stunningly rich, complex, soil-inflected Malbecs priced above the hundred-dollar mark. These are status items at home in Argentina and have also found an audience at Argentine steakhouses in the U.S., where they can hold their own against many far more expensive Napa Valley cult cabernets. However, Tanzer’s extensive annual tastings of Argentine wines over the last decade have made it clear that you can enjoy wines not far off this exalted level for a fraction of the price.

Last month, the wine critic published a “Screaming Values” piece on excellent Malbec bottlings retailing for USD16 or less. For just a few dollars more, you can enjoy wines that merited ratings of 90 points or higher in the current issue of the International Wine Cellar—in other words, outstanding bottles that you won’t have to reserve for special occasions. Lured by the huge but highly competitive American market, a handful of serious producers are making consistently superb Malbecs and working with their U.S. importers to keep retail prices for these items in the $20 range. According to Tanzer, these bargains would outclass many Argentine Malbecs in the USD 40 – 80 price range he tasted in his annual tasting.

See below some of the wines Tanzer considered ridiculously cheap for their quality.
