Heiner Lobenberg über:
Vina Almaviva 2017


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. 98-100/100


Suckling über: Vina Almaviva

-- Suckling: The aromas of blackberry leaves and iodine are wild and exotic here with mussel shells and earth underneath. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with powerful tannins that show muscle. It’s structured and powerful. Dense and very, very deep. Don’t touch this until 2025. 100/100


Tim Atkin über: Vina Almaviva

-- Tim Atkin: Brilliant winemakers come into their own in difficult vintages and it's fascinating to hear Michel Friou talk about how he dealt with the contrasting challenges of the 2016 and 2017 growing seasons. If the former was very good indeed, the latter is the best young vintage of Almaviva I've ever tasted. It’s a wonderfully complex, harmonious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 23% Carmenère, 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot. Fine, elegant and subtle, with good density, scented cigarbox oak and a lovely interplay between acidity, cassis and bramble fruit weight and 77% new oak. My Chilean red wine of the year. 98/100


Decanter über: Vina Almaviva

-- Decanter: A Bordeaux blend, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) and Carmenère (25%). Power and concentration, elegance and balance. Exuberant aromas of cassis, damson plums and peppers. The palate is complex with cigar box, dark fruit and herbal notes framed by dense and polished tannins, finely integrated oak and finishing on a remarkable lifted length. A wine that will benefit from decanting or laying down. 97/100

Mein Winzer

Vina Almaviva – Rothschild / Concha y Torro

Die zweite Invasion der Familie Rothschild auf dem amerikanischen Kontinent. Der kalifornische Opus One, ein Joint Venture mit Mondavi, ist inzwischen eine Legende. Der Almaviva, ein Joint Venture mit Concha y Torro, ist schon jetzt ein Kultwein.
