Description

Lapostolle Apalta 2018

Lapostolle Apalta has a bright red colour with violet edges. Elegant and expressive bouquet of blackberries, liquorice and pepper. Silky mouthfeel with a round structure, juicy tannins and a lively finish. Blackberry, dark plum and red cherry flavours fill the mouth, layering with coffee and chocolate accents.

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah and 10% Carmenere

The fruit for this wine comes from Lapostolle’s Apalta Vineyard in Apalta Valley. Apalta Valley is between the Andes mountain range, Tinguiririca River and the coastal cordillera that ends in a “horse shoe” shape. The east and west sides of the “horse shoe” form a barrier that delays the arrival of the morning sun and attenuates exposure to the sunlight in the evening. That position permits a good regulation of sunshine, allowing it to escape the excess heat that is well-known in hot climates.

Thanks to the hills that surround the vineyard, the old vines located in the lowest part of the field receive underground water that provides sufficient natural water during almost the whole growing season.

The Apalta vineyard was planted with Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah between 1920 and 2006. Some of the oldest blocks, planted in 1920, have vines that were brought from France at the end of the 19th century.
