The list ranks prime samples sourced from the most prestigious winemaking regions in the world: Bordeaux, Italy, Napa Valley, New Zealand, Spain, and California, among others..
Bodega Trapiche received a special mention for its icon wine Iscay Malbec – Cabernet Franc 2013: not only was it chosen among the best 100 wines of the year, but it was also the best ranked Argentine wine in the list, in the 23rd place. This is the second time in the year that James Suckling awards Trapiche an international accolade. At 99 points, Iscay Malbec Cabernet Franc 2013 received the highest score among the wines in the report. Daniel Pi, Chief Winemaker, stated, “We’re very happy and proud because Iscay, one of our most select wines, continues to bring us great satisfaction. This second distinction this year proves Iscay is a wine that speaks for itself and continues to captivate the most demanding palates in Argentina and the world.”
