SALENA ESTATE RANGE - IMPRESSIVE WINES
Great Value $180 per case or $16 pb mixed case
Salena Estate is based in South Australia's picturesque Riverland district, a viticultural region that is envied for its abundant sunshine. This region offers them the benefit of near perfect weather conditions to craft their wines. Their adoption of organics in the vineyards and single-minded focus on achieving exceptional varietal flavour and character in their wines is producing great results.
We have been selling their Cabernet Sauvignon since last year, but I'm now very pleased to add the rest of the range. The four wines in their organic range have all been awarded multiple wine show medals, verifying their quality.
Salena 2008 Organic Chardonnay
Complex, interesting yeasty notes complement the mineral acidity and lingering fruity flavours. (more) Silver Medal: 2008 San Francisco International Wine Comp
Salena 2007 Organic Rose
A lovely blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mouvedre. The palate shows berry freshness, softness and a hint of sweetness with an easy-drinking texture. (more) Silver Medal: 2008 San Francisco International Wine Comp
