Trapiche Terroir Series Malbec Finca Coletto is 100% Malbec from a farm in the Mendoza wine-growing region. Each year Trapiche choose three different growers’ Malbecs, from three of their different growers to represent the best Malbec that Trapiche can offer in a particular vintage. It is a great accolade for the growers to be chosen for this honour. These wines used to be known as Trapiche Single Vineyard Malbecs, for the last few vintages it has been known as the Trapiche Terroir Series Malbec range.
Daniel Pi, Trapiche’s Head Winemaker, and his winemaking team have led the unification of vineyard management and winemaking at Trapiche, and are now recognised as the Malbec specialists of Argentina. Each single vineyard is located in different areas in Mendoza and at different altitudes, this variation in terroir leads to three markedly different wines. In 2011 the three single vineyards chosen for this privilege are Finca Ambrosia, Finca Coletto and Finca Orellana.
Trapiche Terroir Series Malbec Finca Coletto 2011 is 100% Malbec from a single vineyard located at 1127 above sea level in El Parel, Tupungato, Mendoza. All three of the Terroir Series wines are vinified in the same traditional mannner. After harvest the grapes are fermented in concrete tanks with native yeast. After vinification the wine is aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels.
