Elegant, complex and aromatic on the nose, full of red fruit and sweet spices. Medium-bodied with an elegant, juicy mouthfeel; long and round on the finish.

The Rapel Valley has a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, with rain mainly in the winter. The growing season has warm, dry days and cool nights with cold breezes coming from the Andes Mountains.  The grapes for this vintage are partly from Lapostolle’s own vineyards and partly from long term contract growers in the region. All grapes were harvested by hand.
