Trapiche Malbec Terroir Series 'Finca Ambrosia' 2018

Product description

96 Points - James Suckling

Dark colour. Blackberries with violets and flowers on the nose. It's full-bodied and tight with firm, silky tannins and a long finish of blueberries and graphite. Inky. Racy and refined. Tight and needs time to open up—high-altitude vines. Try after 2024.

The 2018 Terroir Series Malbec Finca Ambrosía shows ripe black fruit, soft tannins, and some toasted aromas and flavours. I found it unusually ripe and was not surprised to see 15.2% alcohol in the documentation. Coupled with moderate acidity and 3.2 grams of residual sugar, it gave it an unexpectedly mellow character, a gentler side of Gualtallary.

This red has a nose of raspberry, grilled bell pepper, and peppercorn. On the palate, it offers intense black-fruit flavours blended with toasted oak and hints of dried herbs. Tannins are slightly rough in this full-bodied wine that finishes with a touch of cigar box in the aftertaste.
