The Trapiche team was immensely proud to receive the Trophy for the "Argentinian Wine Producer of the Year 2006", awarded by a jury of wine experts on October 31st in London. When the IWSC, one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the world, created the trophy for "Argentinian wine producer of the year" in 2004, Trapiche was the first winery ever to receive it. The trophy was created because of the growing importance of the Argentina category within the industry; P&O Nedlloyd Logistics is the official sponsor. History repeats itself. Being awarded the trophy again is the proof that Trapiche is paving the way in Argentina´s wine industry, both in terms of quality and innovation. The winner is designated on the basis of its general performance at the IWSC 2006 and Trapiche won the only Gold Medal for an Argentinian wine with Medalla 2003. According to the competition officials, "Each year, the International Wine and Spirit Competition commends the achievements of those members of the wine and spirit trade who make an outstanding contribution to the industry. These individuals or companies set the standards of excellence for the rest of the industry to follow and influence the quality, variety, value, and educational information available to the wine and spirit consumer." Undoubtedly this trophy consolidates Trapiche´s leadership in the Argentinian wine industry. Read less

Say what you want about wine that comes in a big bottle – this malbec from Trapiche, with grapes from vineyards spread across the Cuyo region (La Rioja, Mendoza, San Juan, and San Luis), delivers the basics and does it well. The wine is on the lighter side, but fresh blackberry and blueberry flavors mingle in the mouth, followed by a velvety finish where notes of vanilla and maple surface. You could hardly do better for the price per ounce. (AV 88, http://argovino.com/?p=1043)

Smooth with a modest finish. Nice unobtrusive wine.

Pretty sweet and herbal for a malbec. Attractive scarlet highlights. Not a very interesting nose - a little tannin, but not bad. This is a bit simple, and it has some sugary sweetness to it, but overall it is nice. Definitely worth the $10 I spent on it.

Nose: Maple syrup, raspberry reduction Notes: Raspberry and strawberry syrup, strong concentrated fruit with slight coppery aftertaste. Remarkably drinkable for the price!

    The Astica Malbec is pure and round in body with ripe, sweet flavors of red berry fruit.
