Description

The complexity and elegance of a fine Chilean red wine

The estate

Viña Almaviva was founded in 1997 following the collaboration between Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Don Alfonso Larrain, President of Viña Concha y Toro. The Viña Almaviva project gives rise to fine Chilean wines that benefit from a rich French winemaking know-how and the unique expression of this Central Valley terroir.

The vineyard

Located in the heart of the beautiful Maipo Valley, the Almaviva vineyard covers 50 hectares. The emblematic Bordeaux grape varieties thrive in this exceptional terroir. Almaviva has now become an essential reference for fine Chilean wines throughout the world.

The wine

To celebrate the estate's 25th anniversary, the 2020 vintage by Almaviva is adorned with a special "25 años" label.

The vintage

A particularly dry year, 2020 began with a cool, dry winter, resulting in a late budburst, particularly during the first two weeks of October. The spring and summer were marked by high temperatures but also by drought. These conditions favoured a rapid maturation of the vineyard and an early harvest, which ended three to four weeks earlier than in recent years. Despite this extreme climate and thanks to the rigour of the teams, the 2020 vintage reveals a fruity structure, a fresh expression and a rare tension.

Vinification and ageing

Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (100% new).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (68%)
Carménère (24%)
Cabernet Franc (6%)
Petit Verdot (2%).


Almaviva 2020: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour
This wine showcases an intense ruby colour.

Nose
The pure and expressive nose blends fruity (blackberry, blackcurrant, wild strawberry) and floral (violet) aromas with notes of ink, vanilla and dark chocolate. When aerated, a smooth minerality emerges.

Palate
The elegant and generous palate exudes an alluring balance, vivacity and structure. Full and fine tannins stretch to a persistent and smooth finish.
