Argentina Goes French

TrapicheTrapiche is red hot. Argentina’s biggest winery has upped the ante to compete with the country’s new upstarts and is sending us fantastic wines. The 09 Syrah combines peppery flavours with richness, and a down-to-earth feeling. The perfect formula for house wine. Because it’s good-with-anything.

If you find that this wine tastes a lot like Cotes du Rhone ““ you’re absolutely right. The Syrah grape originated in the Rhone, and there is a strong resemblance here.

This is one of the best wine buys of the year.
