TASTE
The earlier-drinking little brother of Lapostolle’s iconic Clos Apalta, Canto is a deliciously juicy yet immensely refined blend. Luxurious fruit aromas are framed by tobacco and chocolate from the Carmenère, while the palate combines serious depth with a smooth, rounded texture.

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 Rapel Valley is one of the few places with ideal conditions for Carmenère. The climate is semi-arid Mediterranean with winter-only rainfall and warm, dry days during the growing season. Both the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean have a cooling influence on the vineyards. The soils are of alluvial origin with a layer of clay and good drainage. The grapes for this vintage are partly from Lapostolle’s own Apalta vineyard and partly from long-term contract growers in the region. All grapes were harvested by hand in small, fourteen-kilo cases and carefully transported to the winery.

WINERY
Cluster selection took place by hand. The must was fermented with wild yeast and macerated for up to five weeks to extract structure and colour. Sixty-two percent of the wine was aged for eleven months in French oak, with five percent new wood.
