The Trapiche Broquel tier of wines are single vineyard selections from within the estate vineyards in Mendoza.

Terroir: Broquel Malbec is sourced from estate vineyards that average 25+ years old. Elevations average above 2500 feet creating an environment perfectly suited for achieving maximum ripeness with little human interference.

Vinification: The grapes are hand-harvested and transported to the winery in small plastic crates to avoid damage to the fruit. Upon arrival grapes are sorted and destemmed before a maceration and fermentation in small concrete vats for a period of 20-25 days. The wine is aged for 15 months in a combination of 100% new French and American oak barrels.
