tim atkin logo 250"Quantities of former diplomat and journalist David Smith's Malbec are small at only 9,000 bottles, alas, but this is well worth tracking down. Bright, aromatic and deeply coloured, with assertive oak, fine tannins and floral top notes, this has the concentration to age further in bottle."

2017 Sonvida Malbec Mendoza - 92 PTS - WA

wa"I loved the clean and expressive nose of the 2017 Malbec, a wine that didn't show any excess. It felt extremely young, it's subtle, elegant and balanced, with very fine tannins, great purity and focus. It's an Altamira Malbec with the soul of an old-world red. This should make old bones if you can resist pulling the cork. 6,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"

2015 Sonvida Malbec Mendoza - 92 PTS - WA

wa"The 2015 Malbec has an old-world style in its balance, elegance and smoothness but with the chalky texture of the Altamira soils. It's very harmonious and young, as classic as it gets, medium-bodied and very drinkable. It has developed some extra complexity in the bottle and comes through as complex and layered. Terrific right now. 4,800 bottles were filled in 2017. - Luis Gutiérrez"

wa89"The 2014 Malbec was produced with grapes from Valle de Uco. It has some medicinal and balsamic notes, with aromatic herbs and wild fruit, and something petrol-like. The palate is medium-bodied and nicely balanced, with fine tannins and a touch of rusticity. - Luis Gutiérrez"

 tim atkin logo 250"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"
