Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Sourced from our own vineyards, Cuvée Alexandre wines express our dedication to quality and the expression of the Terroir of Lapostolle Wines.   

About the Vineyard

Apalta is located 170 Kilometres South West of Santiago in the Colchagua Valley. The Vineyard is situated on a North to South exposure, which is quite rare in Chile. Its climate could be described as semi- arid Mediterranean; with a winter only rainy season and a long dry summer season.

Wine Production

To express the terroir of Apalta is our mission; so, our winemaking philosophy remains very natural a process with minimal intervention. Our key points are 100% hand harvest in small cases of 14 kilos, strict fruit selection by 100% optical state of the art grape selection.

Tasting Notes

Intense, deep red color with purple edges. Expressive and intense nose with cassis and black currant aromas. Elegant palate with round and persistent tannins, with fresh cherry along with a light toast flavor.

Food Pairing

Keep for many years or decant and serve at 16°C (60°F). High
flavouring dishes as lamb shank with herbs or pork fillet with mustard and honey.
