David Smith, owner of Sonvida has now built his own micro-winery on his property, but still has Alejandro Vigil as winemaker. This is a blend made from grapes at his own vineyard called Finca Allegria. It is in the heart of Paraje Altamira and this shows in the wine. It is a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Taken from the best barrels, this is showing red and black fruits, menthol, herbs and huge amount of minerality. Although young, it has an opulence, no doubt because of the oak. Whilst evident, this supports the fruit rather than overpowering it. Allegria is lovingly named after David and Sonia’s daughter.
