TASTING NOTES
A remarkably sleek, refined Carmenère, which really brings out the grape’s mineral side while balancing power and elegance on a knife edge. The palate is charged with ripe, focused blackcurrant fruit, the finish long and satisfying.

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. Three parcels of the vineyard contribute to this wine: colluvial granitic slopes for concentration and acidity, lower alluvial stretches for juiciness and colour, and a particularly fine sandy plot of Carmenère.

WINERY
Following a manual harvest, grapes underwent a strict selection, by both bunch and berry, including twenty-five 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 nine months in French oak barrels, with fifty-eight percent new wood, and was then bottled with only the lightest of filtrations.
