TASTE
Intense aromas of red berries and spices, with vanilla and rose complexity. Medium-bodied with a firm Pinot structure, this is long and aromatic in the mouth.

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 biodynamically-farmed Atalayas Vineyard in the Casablanca Valley. Its rolling hills offer steep exposures which are the source of an array of mesoclimates. The vineyard is located on slopes facing various directions. Effective canopy management and a green harvest ensure the health of the grapes. 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 and transported to the winery in refrigerated trucks.

WINERY
The grapes underwent optical bunch selection, followed by wild yeast fermentation at 24-26°C in small tanks. Following malolactic fermentation in wood, the wine was aged in medium-toast French oak barrels (fifteen percent new) for eight months.
