TASTING NOTES
Expressive notes of white and black pepper, meaty tones and black and red fruit, as well as an elegant touch of oak. The palate is full, round and velvety with a long 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
Under a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, the certified organic Apalta vineyard has a special meso-climate that is different from the rest of the Colchagua Valley. The vineyard benefits both from a cooling influence from the Tinguiririca river on one side, and protection from intense morning and evening sunlight from the hills surrounding the vineyard like a horseshoe. This creek-like setting ensure balance and silky texture in the Syrah. The soils are colluvial with granitic clay. The vineyard is managed according to organic and biodynamic principles and grapes were hand harvested in the early hours of the morning.

WINERY
The best bunches were selected by hand, and then the berries went through optical sorting. The must underwent cold maceration for seven days at 8°C. Wild yeast fermentation took place in French oak vats for fourteen days at 26°C. This was followed by post-fermentation skin contact for one week. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels (thirty-nine percent new) for eighteen months before release.
