Trapiche Terroir Series Malbec Finca Ambrosia is 100% Malbec from a single vineyard located at 1307 meters above sea level in the Gualtallary Valley, Tupungato, Mendoza. The vines are grown on sandy soils with calcareous gravel to a plant density of 2500 per hectare & the vines follow a North-South orientation. All three of the Terroir Series wines are vinified in the same traditional manner. The grapes are hand-harvested into small 20kg crates to ensure they are not damaged. The grapes then undergo destemming and berry selection at the winery. The grapes are fermented in small concrete tanks with wild yeasts for 25 days and the wine undergoes natural malolactic fermentation. After vinification, the wine is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels and a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.
