Established in 1883, Trapiche is the most widely recognized Argentinean wine producer in the world. Located in Mendoza at the foothills of the Andes mountains, Trapiche has some of the most extensive landholdings in the area, with over 2,500 acres of its own vineyards. Under the guidance of Chief Winemaker, Daniel Pi, Trapiche has consolidated all of its winemaking and viticulture, creating a synergy between winemaking and agriculture. Along with his team of winemakers and Marcelo Belmonte, Director of Viticulture, Daniel Pi’s vision for Trapiche is to express the richness of diversity of the terroir in Argentina.
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, which represent the best of Argentina.
The grapes making this wine come from vineyards in Cruz de Piedra and Ugarteche y Agrelo. The soils are alluvial settled on boulders. Grapes are hand harvested with a selection of bunches. After destemming, there is a berry selection. There is fermentation and maceration for 25 days, to extract optimal, soft tannins, colors and aromas. The musts are then gently pressed pneumatically and malolactic begins naturally. The wine is aged French and American oak barrels, and aged for 12 months. The lots are then blended, lightly filtered and bottled.
