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

Quality wine for a nice price. One of my first and favorite wines from Argentina. Deep color with strong aromas of fruit. Heavy body with hints of raspberries and cherry with a nice balance of acidity leaving you wanting more. Great everyday wine or when paired with red meats.

Oaky nose. Strong fruit taste - plums and prunes. Quite acidic. Decent overall. Strong licorice finish.

Ein Rebberg auf 920 m.ü.M., ein besonderes Mikroklima, das vom Fluss Mendoza beeinflusst ist, und nahezu 100jährige Reben bilden die Basis für ein aussergewöhnliches Einzellagen-Gewächs des Winzers Eleodoro Aciar in Perdriel (Region Luján de Cuyo). Um diese Vielschichtigkeit und Komplexität zu erlangen, wird aber auch vom Oenologen Daniel Pi alles abverlangt. Das Resultat lässt sich sehen! Eine reichhaltige Aromapalette, von reifen Fruchtnoten über Steinfrüchte bis zu Ausbaunoten reichend, eine dichte Struktur, eine gehaltvolle, mächtige Textur im Gaumen und ein nachhaltiges Finale zeugen von einer ganz grossen Klasse. Aber geben Sie diesem Wein Zeit, denn nur nach einigen Jahren der Flaschenreife offenbart sich im Glas die wirkliche Grösse dieses Cru, der ganz andere Dimensionen zu erreichen vermag.

Die sehr intensiven, fruchtigen Aromen von reifen Zwetschgen und die roten Beeren passen zu den feinen Ausbauaromen (Süssholz, Vanille). Im Gaumen überzeugt dieser Malbec von TRAPICHE durch Eleganz und Kraft sowie durch seine runde, zugängliche Textur. Der Abgang widerspiegelt die positiven Eindrücke und ist anhaltend.

A Malbec with deep purple hues, and concentrated fruitnotes like blackberry and red currant. It is a wine with anexquisite mouth and very sweet tannins from 18 monthsof oak ageing and a long silky finish. This noble wineexpresses the maturity of the vineyards in each of itscharacteristics honoring Francisco and his wife, his lifetimepartner.
