TASTE
An intense nose of red berry fruit, spicy notes and tea leaves leads to an attractive, concentrated palate, with plenty of power up front but a delicacy and finesse despite its full body.

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
Grapes are from the Apalta vineyard in the Colchagua Valley, certified organic and biodynamic. It is situated on a north-south exposure, has a river on one side, and hills surrounding the rest of the vineyard like a horseshoe. The Cabernet grapes are from ninety-year old vines planted on soil of colluvial origin, with a high proportion of granite and quartz.

WINERY
Following a manual harvest, grapes underwent a strict selection, by both bunch and berry, including fifteen percent hand destemming. Wild- yeast fermentation in both stainless steel and wooden vats lasted for 4-5 weeks, with skin contact throughout. The wine was aged for twelve months in French oak barrels, with twenty-eight percent new wood, and was then bottled without fining, and only the lightest of filtrations.
