Broquel Bonarda 2012
Ideal to serve with red meat dishes and pasta with tomato based sauces.
The wines have a new international style, with more fruit and personality. The grapes are now not only coming from Trapiche's greatest vineyards in Mendoza, but also from the very best terroirs of Argentina.
All these changes needed to be shown not only inside the bottle but outside as well. A fresh, appealing, eye-catching and international packaging was developed across the entire portfolio.
By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.
For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.
