Lapostolle Apalta Red 2019

Lapostolle Apalta represents the heart of Lapostolle: French winemaking and blending expertise combined with Chilean terroir at its best.

Wine Production

100% hand harvested, strict fruit selection by state of the art Vistalys optical sorter. All fermentations were made in stainless steel tanks. The Apalta blend enhances the main characteristics of each variety: from Cabernet Sauvignon, its complexity and elegant structure; from Syrah, its exuberant and attractive aromas; and from the Carmenere, its roundness and spicy expression. 70% of the blend was aged for 12 months in a mix of new and second use French oak barrels. The wine was clarified and a very light filtration was done previous bottling.

Tasting Notes

Intense and deep red color with violet edges; Elegant, fine and well balanced nose with black fruits such as blackberry and black spicy aromas; Palate has a silky attack followed by red and black fruit, coffee and chocolate flavors with good tannins delivering a very good structure.
