Product Description

The house style is one of fruit forward Cabernet Franc aromas and flavors. This medium bodied and silky wine is filled with strawberries, red currants and cherries on the palate, and has an elegant finish.

Both light and dark meat pair incredibly well with this wine. Fish, cheese and stewed fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, or yellow peaches are a wonderful accompaniment to this well balanced wine.

Winery: Rouet

The Rouet Estate
Jean-Francois Rouet is the owner of Domaine Rouet and represents the 7th generation to make wine in his family.

The Rouet Vineyard
The estate is 16 hectares (40 acres) and is planted to vines that average 30-35 years old. They produce 85% red wines and 15% rose, but no white wine currently. The chalky soil in this vineyard is seasoned with alluvial sand. This siliceous component gives the wine a distinctive note of raspberries or cherries, depending upon its age. The domaine uses Seguin-Moreau oak barrels, Allier oak, and keeps the barrels for 4 years. No chemical products are used in the production of their wines.

SonVida Malbec 2015

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

SonVida Malbec is a single vineyard wine, the supreme expression of the award-winning zone of Altamira, in Argentina's Uco Valley. Altamira's smooth tannins shine through, and the combination of acidity and minerality lead the wine to a long, integrated finish.

"The wine is proud to be ripe and generous. Aromas dominated by smokey mulberry and blueberry. It's plush and coats the palate with bramble, blueberry and liquorice and the scent of vanilla. Immediately muscular and broad-shouldered in the glass, with a savory note, perhaps tapenade, running through the dense palate with mint and dried herbs on the finish. The oak will integrate over time, mixing its spice with the warm spice of fruit. - Joe Fattorini - The Wine Show"

Sunny Summer with moderate nighttime temperatures, followed by an early Fall.
Grapes come from the Mendoza region, in the Paraje Altamira area.

YIELD: 35 Hl/HA
MACERATION: Total 25 days, first cold-soaked 5 days, 14 days fermentation at 24° C, plus 7 additional days. No filtration.

SonVida Malbec can be enjoyed on its own, and matches perfectly with meats, chicken, turkey and hard cheeses. It is enjoyed best in good company. ‘Would you like another glass?’ The answer, almost always, is ‘yes’.

 


Review:

"Former diplomat and journalist David Smith doesn’t make much wine, alas, but the quality is extremely good indeed. Subtle, refreshing and marked by the chalky terroir of Paraje Altamira, it’s a nuanced, skilfully oaked Malbec with precision, focus and impressive palate length. 2020-25"
- Tim Atkin, Argentina Special Report 2018), 93 pts

"A gorgeously rustic, complex wine packed with blossom, dark fruits and Christmas spices. Rich and satisfyingly rounded with soft tannins."- Decanter World Wine Awards 2018, 93 pts - SILVER MEDAL
