About the Producer

Trapiche is located in Mendoza, Argentina, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains. In over 130 years of production experience, Trapiche has become Argentina’s largest exported premium wine brand, exporting to more than 80 countries worldwide.

Trapiche represents “the richness of diversity” in Argentina. Throughout its history, it has understood like no other the strength of the viticulture in Argentina and has specialized in obtaining the best from every vineyard to create unique wines.

This diversity can be traced back to more than 1,000 hectares of its own vineyards as well as to grapes sourced from more than 200 independent producers in the best wine growing areas of Argentina.

In its wide and diverse portfolio, Trapiche offers a wine for occasion and every palate.


Grapes

100% Malbec


Vineyard

Vinification

The grapes are picked by hand and undergo cold skin maceration. After the addition of selected yeasts, fermentation follows for about 15 days at controlled temperature (23°-26°C).


Ageing

After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 9 months in French and American oak, after which it gets blended, filtered and bottled.


Tasting Notes

Purple hues, the nose offers up “pain grille”, mineral overtones, plums and black cherry notes with a touch of black pepper. The palate is soft and round, with ripe, saturated berry flavours. It finishes spicy and full, with chewy, ripe tannins.


Analysis

14% alcohol vol.


Food Suggestions

Malbec is best serve with cheeses, red meats, mushrooms, stew and with the typical Argentinian “asado” (mixed, grilled meats).
