When I first came to Apalta, it struck me – unique geography, climate and old vines that are not grafted. The potential that lay hidden in this incredible place came to reality with the creation of Clos Apalta.Jacques Begarie, Chief Winemaker
Brightly coloured with hints of purple, the wine reflects the intense colour of carmenere grapes and typical aromas of ripe fruits.
Delicate cherry aromas, subtly balanced out by spicy touches of black pepper.
The Merlot offers up black fruit aromas such as black cherry and blackberry. The Cabernet Sauvignon, in particular from old pre-phylloxera vines, offers up aromas of red fruit and black fruit with some ripe bell pepper and black olive notes. The Carmenère is rich with rounded tannins. Freshness on the palate ensures a beautiful finish of black fruit, smoke, cocoa, leather and tobacco.
Appelation : Apalta Valley, Colchagua, Chile.
64% Carmenère, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot.
