Estacion 1883 Bonarda, Trapiche
Argentina – 2017
Tasting Note: Fruity Argentinian red, packed with plums and strawberries, finishing with a lick of liquorice and a wisp of smoke.
Food Matching: Ideal with grilled red meats and rich tomato pasta dishes.
Vineyard: These vines are grown in the Los Arboles vineyards in the Uco Valley. Organic practices are followed as they aim to preserve the natural properties of the grapes by eliminating the use of chemicals, herbicides and fungicides.
Vinification: The grapes are hand harvested bunch by bunch to ensure only the best fruit is selected. All the fruit is destemmed followed by fermentation and maceration in small concrete tanks for 25 days at around 23-25ºC. Fermentation is followed by a gentle pneumatic pressing and a natural malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 15 months in a mix of French and American oak barrels being filtered and bottled.
