Reviews and Ratings

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.
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
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
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, dark plum and savoury spice on the palate. Finishes peppery and smooth on the palate. Pair with grilled meats, hard cheeses and charcuterie. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
