2017 Clos Apalta Lapostolle Colchagua Valley - Chile Red

St Barth’s Wine


Lapostolle was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders, and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier is famous for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has also been involved in winemaking for generations.

Apalta is located at 170 Kilometers South West of Santiago in the Colchagua
Valley. The Vineyard is situated on a North to South exposure, which is quite
rare in Chile. The Tinguiririca river rests on one side and the hills from the
Coastal Cordillera surrounds the vineyard like a horseshoe on the other. They are
both integral in forming this unique terroir. This geography is responsible for the
conditions that ensure balance for our vines and a slow ripening for the grapes. At
sunrise and sunset, the Cordillera block the sun’s rays, limiting the vines exposure
to intense sunshine and the river has a cooling influence on the climate.

Blend: 48% Carmenère, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot

Deep garnet in appearance, the wine reflects the intense colour of carmenère grapes and typical aromas of ripe fruits.

An abundance of aromas, including redcurrant, raspberry and wild strawberries, reflects the stunning complexity of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and carmenère. 

The initial wave of berry fruits, underpinned by soft, silky tannins, is pursued by contrasting touches of black olive, blackcurrant and liquorice. Incredibly long and taut on the finish, revealing exquisite, delicate tannins, and expressing the great elegance of the Apalta terroirs.
