Golden Reserve Summary
Trivento’s highly acclaimed, limited edition Golden Reserve collection comprises a Malbec, Syrah and Chardonnay. These are terroir-driven wines — each effectively a cru, arising from a small and judicious selection of vineyards located in the higher altitudes of the prime Luján de Cuyo (for the Malbec) and Tupungato zones (for the Chardonnay and Syrah) of Mendoza. Higher altitudes contribute to a greater concentration of fruit, denser, weightier mouth-feel and a higher ratio of natural acidity that ultimately facilitates the wines’ ability to age. In the case of Trivento’s Golden Reserve Malbec, grapes are harvested from those remaining parcels of the remarkable Luján de Cuyo vineyard planted in 1912 not designated for the winery’s icon wine, the Eolo Malbec.
Grapes for all three Golden Reserve wines are harvested by hand, with selected bunches placed in small containers to ensure that the fruit reaches the winery in perfect condition. At the winery, a further selection takes place, with individual grapes selected by hand. The Golden Reserve wines are vinified and aged at a separate, designated winemaking facility, under the supervision of winemaker Germán Di Césare. Each is aged approximately 12 months, followed by additional bottle aging, with the length of time in bottle varying slightly according to the varietal and individual characteristics of each vintage.
Golden Reserve Chardonnay: Trivento Golden Reserve Chardonnay is light gold with greenish hues. It has an alluring bouquet full of rich tropical-fruit and floral aromas complemented by dried fruits and oak-endowed vanilla notes. Elegant and well-structured on the palate, the wine delivers fruit-forward flavors of melon and apple with some vanilla followed by a crisp acidity that leads to a soft, voluptuous finish.
Golden Reserve Malbec: Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec is purple red with deep violet tones. It has a bouquet of berry fruits, plum jam, coffee and tobacco notes. The wine is elegant and powerful on the palate with velvety tannins.
Golden Reserve Syrah: Trivento Golden Reserve Syrah is an elegant, deep, dark-red wine. On the bouquet, notes of ripe red raspberry and blackberry mingle with the spice of black pepper, clove and a hint of smoke from the oak. Fullbodied, this wine is rich and concentrated with a strong personality and a long, convincing finish.Print This Page
