ALMAVIVA 2016 RELEASED

The new vintage is being offered by négoce for €87 per bottle, an increase of 11.5% on the 2015 price.

The wine is therefore being offered for around £1,116 per dozen by merchants, which is a rise of 16% (in sterling terms) on the 2015 price of £960.

The wine has garnered a 97 point score from James Suckling who called it “very fine”.

Suckling had granted the 2015 a ‘perfect’ 100-point score however and both the 2015 and 2016 vintages are available at about the same price.

The 2014 and 2010 vintages meanwhile have the same score as the 2016 and aren’t much more expensive and the 2013 is a shade cheaper.

Both the Opus One 2015 and Masseto 2015 have been sold with some success due to their compelling releases – whether it will be the same for Almaviva only time will tell.

The Story

In 1997 Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Vina Concha y Toro forged a partnership with a view to create an exceptional Chilean equivalent of a Bordeaux Grand Cru Classe. This wine was to be called called Almaviva.
 
Located in the Maipo Valley, in Chile's central zone, the Puente Alto vineyards behind Almaviva are recognized for offering ideal conditions for growing the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. It is here that 85 hectares have been reserved exclusively for Almaviva.
 
 

Since Almaviva's launch in 1998 the wines popularity has rocketed. Now seen as one of the finest wines in the world Almaviva kudos has to go to winemaker Tod Mostero for producing a wine of such consistent high quality.
