Trapiche is one of the oldest brands still produced in Argentina. It used to belong to the Pulenta family, creators of the Penaflor Group, which was bought in 2010 by the Argentine Bemberg family. They are a large company with over 1,200 hectares of vineyards and produce wines in all price ranges. A considerable amount of grapes goes into producing grape concentrate, a product of which Argentina is the leading producer on earth. The group is dynamic and invests some 15 million dollars per year. Trapiche produces an impressive 30 million liters of wine per year, and it is the largest exported brand from Argentina. The wines are sound, often big-sized and considerably oaked, but moving toward the top ranges where there must be less commercial pressure, I find more freshness and tension, more drinkability, which is very welcome, even if some wines are still quite big. Some wines in the Terroir Series, which reflects the grapes of small suppliers throughout the province of Mendoza, are simply phenomenal. -- Luiz Gutierrez
What The Critics Say
93/100 Parker's wine Advocate, Luis Guttierez
"The impressive 2011 Terroir Series Malbec Finca Coletto is sourced from a vineyard in El Peral in Tupungato. It possesses perfectly integrated wood, showy aromatics, and plenty of flowers, blue fruit and juicy, tasty, cherry notes in a round and hedonistic style. Impressive." Drink 2014 - 2019
92/100 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
"Saturated bright ruby. Brisk, fruit-driven aromas of bitter cherry, blackberry, violet, black plum and bitter chocolate. Plush, concentrated and deep, with a chocolately sweetness making the wine more approachable today than the Finca Ambrosia bottling. Lovely dense, pliant texture to the dark fruit flavors. Attractive spice notes give this wine a hedonistic appeal. Substantial tannins are sweet and harmonious." Drink 2016 - 2023
93/100 Wine Enthusiast
"Blackberry and cassis aromas are so subtle, balanced and clean that they barely register while luring you in. An elastic, wide palate has firm, slightly abrasive tannins that should mellow with more time in the bottle, while blackberry, chocolate and spice flavors finish long and smooth, with a hint of raisin." Drink 2016 - 2021
