2006 Viña Almaviva S.A. Almaviva

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

Regular Price: HK$2,300.00

Special Price HK$1,700.00

Tasting Notes:

Starting to open, with cedar, roasted vanilla and mesquite aromas giving way to a rich, loam- and black currant-filled palate. The long, fleshy finish lets the loamy edge play out nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.--Non-blind Viña Almaviva vertical (January 2011). Drink now through 2016. 12,500 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

The 2006 Almaviva continues a series of successful vintages for this Chilean icon. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits an expressive bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, blackcurrant, and blackberry. Elegantly styled and impeccably balanced, it will evolve for several more years and drink well through 2021 at the least.

description Producer information Professional reviews

In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.
