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 grapes for this single-vineyard wine are sourced exclusively from the organic certified Atalayas Vineyard in the Casablanca Valley. Its rolling hills offer steep exposures which are the source of an array of mesoclimates. The soils are of a granite origin, slightly acidic, with low fertility. Sensitive to erosion, they need to be protected by green cover management. The grapes were carefully hand-harvested in the early hours of the morning over a period of about a month, and transported to the winery in refrigerated trucks.

WINERY
After a strict bunch selection, forty-five percent of the juice was fermented in new and used French barrels, while the rest was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Every component was aged in French oak for ten months, with twenty-three percent new oak. Malolactic fermentation was not pursued..
