This blockbuster Argentine Malbec at an amazingly great price for such quality! This robst red wine made from the country's signature grape, Malbec, comes from Mendoza’s Uco Valley. Aromas of fleshy ripe black cherries and plums. Terrific structure, depth and finish. Pair with grilled meats, hard cheeses and charcuterie.

Malbec food pairings: roasted game meats, tourtière, boeuf bourguignon.

Love this wine, dry with mellow flavour went great with our spicy lasagna!
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This wine blew me away, featuring gorgeous black plum, crushed violet, and blackberry compote. There's lots of herb and crushed rock on the finish. Stunning. 92 Points.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Aromatic Damson plum, mocha and vanilla notes in a velvety smooth texture. Delightful for a Malbec - lover.
Tasted Dec. 2018
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Blueberry aromas with cinnamon, cedar, cigar box, and hints of leather.

On the palate, it has beautiful harmony between the flavours, the fresh acidity, and moderate tannins. It has blueberry and blackberry flavours with cedar coming through and a mocha finish.

Tasted May 2018
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of blueberry, vanilla, mocha, leather and spice. Full bodied on the palate, with bright acidity, and ripe berry flavours, with a bit of spice and vanilla on the palate. Enjoy with grilled beef kebabs.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Great value quality Malbec. Ripe plum, raspberry, savoury, lightly toasted coconut shell. Full bodied, complex on the palate, well structured with big yet smooth tannins, great acidity and densely concentrated fruit. Fruit is declared sourced from premium vineyards of Mendoza’s Uca Valley. Weighs in at 14.5% declared. Alcohol is well integrated. Decanted 3h. Tasted 2014 vintage in May 2018. Great value. Buy by the case. 91 points
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fleshy and powerful with plum, blueberry, fig, cedar, sweet tobacco, and peppercorn. Great representation of this grape from a label better known for a bargain wine.
From the Uco Valley, Mendoza, Trapiche Gran Medalla 2014 is a robust and juicy Malbec with fleshy dark cherry, ripe blueberry, dark plum, cedar and savoury spice on the palate. Finishes peppery and smooth. Pair with grilled meats, hard cheeses and charcuterie. - Community Wine Reviews
