The Trapiche Terroir series concept, through its Single Vineyard wines, aims to convey the extraordinary potential of the vast array of Argentina´s terroirs and its effect over the country’s flagship grape, Malbec. Each year, Trapiche's chief winemaker, Daniel Pi, and his team, will select the three best Malbec wines from exceptional vineyards to communicate Trapiche's foundations: the richness of diversity. This concept also represents Trapiche's tribute to the grape growers who deliver their premium grapes and give identity to the wines.
94+/100 Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, September 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright ruby. Pungent crushed-stone minerality lifts the aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and spices. Silky, vinous and penetrating; wonderfully intense and alive, displaying terrific chalky energy but an utterly suave texture too. Really stunningly precise yet dense and filled in, avoiding any impression of weightiness, and a splendid example of Gualtallary chalky saline minerality. Stands out for its sappy lift and compelling subtle sweetness. Finishes with firm tongue- and tooth-dusting tannins and rising palate-staining black-fruit length. This is built for a long and graceful evolution in bottle. By the way, this wine finished with 2.4 grams per liter residual sugar, while the other 2015 Terroir Series Malbecs are all slightly over 3 grams. (aged in 25% new 300-liter Mercurey barrels). Drinking window: 2021-2030."
