Bodegas Salentein, the pioneering winery of the Uco Valley in Mendoza, Argentina, has introduced its Killka brand to the UK market following a nationwide listing with leading wine retailer Majestic Wine for its Killka Chardonnay.

Killka, named after the Andean word for ‘opening’ or ‘portal’, was produced to act as a gateway to the world of wine and art. A truly innovative, artistic and cultural complex adjacent to Bodegas Salentein, Killka boasts two jaw-dropping art exhibition rooms, a wine shop, restaurant, guesthouse, chapel and vineyards.

Its premium Chardonnay offers a greenish yellow colour with golden hues. In the nose, it displays aromas reminiscent of apples and pears, with hints of honey and vanilla granted by its oak ageing. Its taste is fruity and mild, with very good acidity, highlighting its mineral citric character.

Commenting on the listing Robert Bruijnzeels, Regional Manager for Europe, said: “We are delighted to introduce Killka to the UK market and current sales prove it has been a successful decision. We aim to extend the Killka offering to the UK consumer by introducing further varietals from the range in the near future. Killka represents a vision of quality and character of the Uco Valley which we are keen to share with the wider market.”

The Killka Chardonnay 2012 is available to both the on and off trade in a 75cl format with an RSP of £11.99.
