2019 Trothe Limited Malbec

Each year, the Limited label will be made from the best-tasting grapes of the vintage. The 2019 Limited is 100% Malbec and begins with a big, bold, juicy core of spicy fruit and oak essence generously layered with a prominent, balanced, hedonistic expression. Full-bodied, fresh and juicy with succulent tannins, the delicate and focused wine offers bright acidity and will remain food-friendly for years. It's a powerhouse that will continue to please for a decade and a half. Only 480 bottles were made of this spectacular wine!

Growing Season

The 2019 growing season was bookended by unseasonably cool weather. A late start to the vintage saw good fruit set, followed by an intensely hot summer that sped up phenolic and fruit ripening. Overall, an intriguing year for the vine—culminating in a cool close to the season with grapes yielding luxuriously elegant tannins, ripe flavors, and vibrant acidity.
