SonVida Malbec 2012

Number 4 In The Top 100 Wines!

- Wine Enthusiast Magazine (December 2014), 94 pts

 

SonVida Malbec 2012 is made from 95% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

The most challenging of years yielded a great harvest, and a magnificent wine.  Frost in September, just as our Malbec was in budbreak.  Then a fierce Zonda wind in early November, just as the vineyard was flowering.  The result?  Yields low, BUT quality high.

SonVida Malbec 2012 celebrates intense fruit, plum, blackberry, even dark chocolate notes, with the optimal acidity and smooth tannins that are so typical of the award-winning Altamira district in the Uco Valley of Mendoza.  Above all, this latest Malbec from the Alegira vineyard boasts rare balance - a hint of the Old World in the best of the New World.

 


Review:

"This gorgeous Malbec gets it right. Compact, minerally aromas of blackberry are deep and a bit feral. The palate is juicy and pulses with ribald berry fruit and acidity. Blackberry flavors are beefy, salty and a touch roasted, while the finish is baked, rich and perfectly oaked. Drink through 2020. - Michael Schachner"

Bressy Rouge Gourt de Mautens 2010

Blend: 70% Grenache Noir  and 30% various: Carignan, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Counoise, Cinsault, Vaccarèse  and Terret Noir

Vinification: after the harvest, the grapes are carried in 20 kg cases; selection of every single cluster using a sorting table; Destemming.; Slow extraction in a 10-20 day maceration; All the grapes are blended together to produce a single wine, a single Cuvée.
Yield: 14 Hl/hectare
No addition of yeasts or tartar; No fining, no filtration.
Ageing: 12 months in demi-muids (300 liter barrels) and foudre (large barrels); then 18 months in concrete vats. A single bottling, at one time.

It is loaded with chocolate, black raspberries, and kirsch, intermixed with dusty, loamy soil notes, pepper, and the telltale chocolate that comes from the old vine Grenache that bakes in the sun in this high elevation appellation. This is a beauty, slightly rustic but enormously endowed.


Review:

Deeper and richer than the ’11, the 2010 IGP Vaucluse knocks it out of the park with tons of black cherry, raspberry, ground pepper, violets and hints of smoke. Full-bodied, fat, fleshy and unctuously textured, this is a beast of a wine that stays balanced and thrillingly drinkable. Give it another year or three and drink bottles through 2030.-Wine Advocate 95 Points

Bressy Rasteau Rouge Gourt Mautens 2009

Bressy Rasteau Rouge Gourt Mautens 2009  is a blend of Grenache Noir, Carignan, Mourvedre, Sryah, Vaccarese, Terret Noir and Counoise grown on chalky clay marls with north-west and south-west exposure.

Hand picked, sorted in the vineyard and agin in the winery. Crushed with natural fermentation in truncated wooden vats. Ages in casks, demi-muids and concrete vats for between 24 and 36 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.


Reviews:

Also incredible, the 2009 Rasteau has a similar, decadent feel in its black raspberry, licorice, smoked earth, chocolate and saddle leather. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% other permitted varieties, aged in a combination of demi-muid, foudre and concrete tank, it has full-bodied power, massive, yet sweet tannin and blockbuster levels of depth and richness. Drink it anytime over the coming decade or more.- Wine Advocate 96 Points

Mordoree Chateauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois 2012

Mordoree Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Reine des Bois 2012 is made from 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah, 2.5% Vaccarese, 2.5% Counoise.

60 year-old vines
Aged in 50% oak barrels.
Deep ruby red color, red fruits aromas leading to leather, black truffles and coffee notes. Fat and concentrated on the palate, with liquorice and dark fruit flavors.
Pairs well with game and red meats, cheeses.


Reviews:

"One of the blockbusters in the vintage, the inky-colored 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois – 80% Grenache, completely destemmed and aged 12 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% old barrels – offers fantastic richness and depth in its blackberry liqueur, graphite, wood smoke and crushed-rock-like aromas and flavors. An elegant, stylish and polished example of this cuvée, it comes closest in my mind to a lighter-weight 2010. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and with fine tannin, it will drink well for 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck"

Keermont Steepside Syrah  2012

This is an intense wine with a bright scarlet colour. Pure grapey aromas are complimented by red spices, herbs and lavender. The palate has a gentle entry with subtle spicy fruit flavours filling the mid palate. The tight structure gives the wine a succulent dry finish with lingering flavours of red fruit, anise, liquorice and a mineral saltiness. Drink 2014-2024.

All grapes used in producing our wines are grown on Keermont Vineyards. Small parcels of grapes are selected according to optimal ripeness and harvested by hand. The grapes are vinified gently and naturally following traditional techniques.

 


Review:

The 2012 Steepside Syrah owes its names to the vines planted on the vertiginous slopes of the Helderberg Mountain at an elevation of around 300 meters. A special selection is made from small parcels and the wine is fermented in open-top fermenters before maturation in used French barrels for 20 months. It has a very precise bouquet with complex wild strawberry, raspberry and mineral notes that are tightly wound at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, crisp acidity and a broody but compelling finish that will need a couple of years to unfold. Enjoy this Cornas-style Syrah from 2016.
