Trapiche Melodias Winemakers Reserve Chardonnayu is a white wine which forms part of the new Melodias wine range from Trapiche. This wine is the same as the old Trapiche Collecion Roble Chardonnay but apparently Argentinian wines are not allowed to use the word “Roble” in the EU. Trapiche are located in Mendoza, at the foothills of the Andes. Over the last 125 years Trapiches reputation has grown because of their pioneering and innovative spirit and their dedication to quality and diversity to produce the highest quality wines. They represent the richness of diversity in Argentina, with over a 1000 ha of their own vineyards and taking advantage of the different soils and climates, Trapiche have specialised in obtaining the best fruit from their terroir. This wine is produced from vineyards at over 1000m in the foothills of the Andes where the combination of altitude and plenty of sunshine produces concentrated and aromatic fruit. 50 % of this blend was aged in French and American used oak to give it a toasty finish with rounded flavours and good acidity.
