Casa Lapostolle

Clos Apalta is a single vineyard wine made with grapes sourced only from the Apalta vineyard. The vineyard is located at 170 kms South West from Santiago in the Colchagua Valley. It is situated on a North to South exposure, which is quite rare in Chile. The geographic conditions and micro-climate (semi-dry Mediterranean) ensures a slow maturation which allows the grapes to reach their ideal maturity with high concentration and character, preserving the fruit and high levels of natural acidity, ensuring a long ageing potential. The soils are colluvial granitic soils, lightly textured with layers of clay.

Lapostolle Clos Apalta 2014 is a blend of 48% Carmenère; 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot.

Tasting Notes:
Blackberry, fresh herb, wet earth and tar aromas follow through to a full body, with powerful tannins and density yet an agile and polished, textured finish. Much better than 2014. The second wine of Clos Apalta. Try it in 2021
