Trapiche Perfiles Malbec Textura Fina 2018 - Wine

Tasting Notes

This Malbec is smooth, fruity and delicious with medium tannins and a fantastic structure.

Production Notes

Fine textured soil profile at around 950m above sea level encourages excellent water retention and drainage, allowing the vines roots to absorb water and become much more self-sufficient. As a result, this wine is smooth & fruity with medium tannins and a defined structure. The fruit for this wine is harvested by hand following a process of careful bunch selection. After destemming, the juice undergoes fermentation using natural yeasts in small concrete vats for a period of 15-18 days at 23�-25�C. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels of 60 hl capacity for 6 months.
