Intense, complex nose full of different aromas: white pepper and red fruit at the start, then runes and black cherries with some hints of sweet spices.

Juicy on the palate, with soft structure and balance; fresh fruit flavours on the finish.

The Rapel Valley is one of the few places with ideal conditions for Carmenere. The climate is semi-arid Mediterranean with winter-only rainfall and warm, dry days during the growing season. Both the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean have a cooling influence on the vineyards. The soils are of alluvial origin with a layer of clay and good drainage. The grapes for this vintage are partly from Lapostolle's own Apalta vineyard and partly from long term contract growers in the region.

All grapes were harvested by hand in small cases of 14 kilos and carefully transported to the winery. Winery All grapes were macerated for upto four weeks to extract structure and colour. During maceration, fermenation in stainless steel tanks lasted for about two weeks, utilising the native yeasts. Fifty-eight percent of the wine was aged for six months in French oak, a mixture of new and used barrels.
