TASTE
Intense, complex nose full of different aromas: white pepper and red fruit at the start, then prunes and black cherries with some hints of sweet spices. Juicy on the palate, with soft structure and balance; fresh fruit flavors on the finish.

PRODUCER

Lapostolle is owned by the Marnier-Lapostolle family (of Grand Marnier fame), and since the winery’s foundation in 1994 has pursued an uncompromising approach to quality. Their objective is simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French expertise and the superb terroir of Chile.

VINEYARD
The Rapel Valley is one of the few places with ideal conditions for Carmenère. The climate is semi-arid Mediterranean with winter-only rainfall and warm, dry days during the growing season. Both the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean have a cooling influence on the vineyards. The soils are of alluvial origin with a layer of clay and good drainage. The grapes for this vintage are partly from Lapostolle’s own Apalta vineyard and partly from long-term contract growers in the region. All grapes were harvested by hand in small, 14-kilo cases and carefully transported to the winery.

WINERY
The grapes were macerated for up to four weeks to extract structure and colour, within which natural-yeast fermentation itself lasted two weeks at 28-30°C. Just under half the blend was aged in used French barriques for four months.
