Intensive Nase mit Aromen von Walderdbeeren, Johannisbeeren und Himbeeren, unterlegt mit balsamischen Noten von Vanille, Karamell und Kaffeebohnen, warm mit straffer Struktur, schön ausgewogen und sanfte Tannine, im Abgang aromatisch, frisch und harmonisch.
The first wine in their portfolio is already at Reserva level (labeled Crianza in Spain...), of which I tasted the 2014 Viña Alberdi. 2014 was a challenging harvest with lots of rains, and they had to sort and select the grapes. The wine has plenty of balsamic and smoky notes, incense and cigar ash, smoke and spice. The palate is quite marked by the élevage of two years in barrel and reveals a medium-bodied wine with a bitter twist on the finish, and the balsamic notes that you find on the nose make a comeback in the finish. This seems to be a lighter vintage of Viña Alberdi. 500,000 bottles produced. it was bottled in June 2017.
