Tasting Notes

This iconic Merlot has an expressive nose, with fresh black fruit aromas, spices, red pepper and bitter chocolate. The palate is smooth and well balanced, with a generous structure and a long finish.

Grapes for this cuvée are all grown in Lapostolle’s Apalta vineyard, certified organic and biodynamic. It is situated on a north-south exposure, has a river on one side, and hills surrounding the rest of the vineyard like a horseshoe.
