100% Chardonnay. The history of Trapiche begins in 1883, in a small vineyard called El Trapiche, in the district of Godoy Cruz, Mendoza, where the grapes for the first fine wines were grown. With more than 130 years of experience, Trapiche has earned its place as a pioneering brand in the introduction of French vines, the production of varietal wines, the import of French oak barrels and the use of stainless-steel tanks. True to its origins, today Trapiche is in a continuous quest for the latest best practices. Broquel means "shield" and symbolizes a family's heritage. Originally, the grapes were sourced from the vineyard surrounding the winery, but nowadays, the winemakers choose the best terroirs for each variety to elaborate these outstanding wines. The ultra-premium Broquel range shows fruit concentration at its best. The grapes were hand harvested during the first days of March from high-altitude vineyards. A small proportion of the wine was aged nine months in oak barrels to add complexity and structure.
