Tasting notes

08/09/2009

Tiburcio Benegas is credited with bringing the first French vines into Argentina in the 19th century, as well as establishing Trapiche in 1883. This present-day offering is suitably modern and opulent, with polished, creamy fruit and spice. Showy it may be, but the structure is there to support comfortably food. Drink 2009-14. (£16.99)
