Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Purple-coloured, the nose offers up plum and black cherry notes with a touch of black pepper. The palate is soft and round with ripe, saturated berry flavours. Finishes spicy and full with chewy tannins."
92/100 James Suckling (2018 Vintage)
"A generous malbec with dark fruit and hints of graphite. Yet, it remains tight and firm. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"The bouquet is delightfully fruited and inviting with Black Doris plum, blueberry, anise and toasted nut characters, leading to a silky-smooth palate that is supple and lingering. The wine offers youthful fruit vibrancy and intensity, making it so easy to enjoy. At its best: now to 2022."

93/100 International Wine Challenge 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Tobacco, green leaf, lifted cherry, perfumed and leaner frame. Some walnuts on the end. Leaner style."
90/100 Decanter Asia Awards 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"A complex nose of black cherry jam, earthy clay and oak followed by a juicy, smooth and round palate with a long finish."
89/100 Wilfred Wong of Wine.com (2017 Vintage)
"Argentine Malbecs in this price range are always in demand. The wines are generally filled with pleasing black fruit flavours and a soft palate, and this is certainly the case with the 2017 Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec. Enjoy this wine's black fruit flavours with a grilled ribeye."
