Trapiche Astica Merlot Malbec Case of 6 Bottles 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Drei Aromarichtungen offenbaren sich in der Nase: Blüten, Früchte und hefige Noten. Ein erfrischender Sinneseindruck begleitet den Verlauf im Gaumen, der durch einen frisch-fruchtigen Krper mit einer leicht süsslichen Note und mit einer feinen Perlage gekennzeichnet ist. Im anhaltenden Finale endet er fruchtig mit strengen Noten.

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

Dried fruit and flowers on the nose show nice yeasty, toasty nuances. Soft effervescence allows this rich, creamy wine to stretch out across the palate. The fruit shows some pineapple notes with a hint of vanilla and some apple peel notes on the back end, though there is not much follow through on the finish. 84pts

Smooth on the palate. Spicey. Went nicely with spaghetti and vegetarian meatballs in a tomato and basil sauce. Long finish.

Noble wine of a bright red color. Aromas of black fruit and spices. Soft and balanced on the palate, with a pleasant, Long-lasting tannic sensation.

Blackcurrant emanates from the glass follwed by hints of mocca, fine-grained leather, and licorice.

Yellow Color with green hues. Toasted bread and apple pie aromas, typical fragrances of the variety combined with the elegance of the oak. Round wine with good acidity.

Die intensiven, für die Cabernet-Sauvignon–Traube typischen Aromen von grüner Peperoni und feinen Gewürzen vereinigen sich mit fruchtigen Noten, die uns an Zwetschgen und Cassis erinnern. Im Gaumen überwiegen die kräftigen Gerbstoffe, die sich jedoch mit der feinen Fruchtsäure zu einem kompakten, gehaltvollen Ganzen verbinden. Der Abgang ist lang, stoffig und durch eine delikate Fruchtnote gekennzeichnet.
