Heiner Lobenberg über:
Vina Almaviva 2016

98+
/100

Lobenberg: Volle Cabernet-Frucht in kalifornischem Stil, sehr warme Frucht, samtig, vollmundig, üppig, aber ohne übermäßige Marmeladigkeit, tanninreich und doch weich, die seidig-elegante Linie steht im Vordergrund. 98+/100

Suckling über: Vina Almaviva

-- Suckling: A very fine and elegant Almaviva with fresh fruit and herb character. Medium-to-full body, tight and focused with very fine, linear tannins and a chocolate and light cedar undertone to the whole thing. Savory, too. Smoked meat and succulent. It's tight but opens with air. Classicism here. 66% cabernet sauvignon, 24% carmenere, 8% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Drink in 2021. 97/100

Parker über: Vina Almaviva

-- Parker: The 2016 harvest was complicated by rain in late April, which made them hurry up and finish two weeks earlier than normal. The year was also cooler, and the 2016 Almaviva, a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Carmenère, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot has less alcohol at 13.9% compared to 15% in 2014. The élevage was shortened to 16 months, and they decreased the percentage of new French barrels used—down to 77% from the 82% in the previous year. The wine is fresher and less marked by the oak, a more fluid version, with fine tannins. This is a little different, a lighter and fresher year. It was a very dry winter, complicated by rains. I found very good harmony and fine tannins, balance and freshness in one of the most elegant vintages I remember from Almaviva. This has contained power, very accessible tannins and no green notes at all. It's young but accessible and should develop nicely in bottle, as it has the balance and freshness. This is an elegant and fresh vintage for Almaviva, young and tender, taking advantage of the natural conditions for it. Well done! 95/100

Tim Atkin über: Vina Almaviva

-- Tim Atkin: 2016 was a challenging vintage for Almaviva, as it was for many Chilean producers,but Michel Friou has produced a delightful wine in a lighter style. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon with 24% Carmenère, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, it's aromatic, spicy and quite forward with subtle mocha oak and raspberry and cassis flavours. 2020-26 95/100

Weinwisser über: Vina Almaviva

-- Weinwisser: Jugendliche, eher rote Frucht des kühlen und regnerischen Jahres, teilweise vor dem Aprilregen geerntet. Leicht ledrig neben der roten Frucht. Weniger Holzeinsatz als in anderen Jahrgängen. Im Mund noch jugendlich zartgrüne Aspekte, kühl und leicht. Vanilliges und pfeffriges Finale. 18/20
