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: 66% Carmenère, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot.
Dark and deep inky purple red color. Complex nose opening towards ripe and expressive red and black fruit, such as plums, red cherries, dry figs and blueberries. Spices such as cloves and black pepper.
With a concentrated structure, this wine has a round attack followed by velvety and polished tannins filling the mid-palate and a ripe and rich long lasting finish.
