Description

Almaviva EPU is the second wine at this fabulous Almaviva estate – that was established in 1996 as a joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild and the Chilean power-house Concha y Toro. Their aim was to produce a wine of First Growth calibre in Chile’s Maipo Valley – and with 2019 being a magnificently warm and dry vintage in Chile, it has helped do the convincer on the wine critics.

EPU is produced from the same exceptional vines and terroir of Almaviva in Puente Alto, which is known as one of the coolest areas of Chile’s Maipo Valley. 2019 is the first vintage with an international release through the Bordeaux Place and it has already been met with enthusiasm from critics like Gutierrez who has awarded it 93+ Points, noting it as, ‘quite intense and fruit-driven, spicy and herbal, with a creamy texture and fine-grained tannins. It’s a second wine, but they also want to do something different and Epu is perhaps a little more classical, perhaps this is more Bordeaux and Almaviva is more Chilean.’
