A classic example of Shiraz. Note the intense black fruit aromas on the bouquet combined with notes of red berries, licorice and spice. The fruit is ripe and sweet on the palate with a peppery character to it wrapped around silky, smooth tannins with a slight smoky note on the finish.

The Trapiche winery has been crowned The International Wine & Spirits Argentinean Wine Producer of the Year. Trapiche has been making wine in the Mendoza Valley since 1883, so it’s no wonder that they’ve got the expertise to win them that honor!
This is Trapiche Winery’s stainless steel tank room where fermentation takes place. The tanks on the left are jacketed for temperature control during fermentation.
All Trapiche wines are hand-harvested, hand-sorted and vinified at their winery. The wines have a new international style, fruit-driven and consumer friendly, and represent the best of what Argentina has to offer.
Head Winemaker, Daniel Pi, is the mastermind behind Trapiche’s award-winning wines. His vision reaches from the winecellar to the vineyards and to help express the richness of terroir in Argentina he works hand-in-hand with Marcelo Belmonte, Director of Viticulture.
Astica takes its name from an indigenous word for “flower” in Argentina. The wines are produced from hand-picked fruit from the Cuyo Valley. Vinification is done in stainless steel tanks to produce wines in a fresh, fruit-forward, easy-drinking style.
This is a good place to start to get a good idea of the taste of Shiraz in a simple, straightforward style. It also makes the perfect wine partner for a casual pasta dinner or try it with barbecue at a tailgate party!
