Clos Apalta 2015

- An expressive, complex wine offering a mix of plum, red cherry, dried fig, mocha, vanilla and hints of clove.
- The palate shows great concentration and structure, as well as a long and vibrant finish.
- The grapes in this wine all come from premium sites in the Apalta vineyard in the Colchagua Valley. The Carmenere and Cabernet that form the majority of the blend are from pre-phylloxera vines planted in 1920. They grow on hillside colluvial granitic soils, lightly textured with layers of clay. Unusually for Chile, the Apalta vineyard is exposed north-south, and has a different mesoclimate from the rest of the Colchagua Valley. The fruit was hand-harvested at night into small baskets.
- Grapes were hand-destemmed, and the must transferred to small French oak vats, where native yeasts were allowed to ferment the it slowly. The new wine was racked directly into all new French oak barrels, where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for twenty-four months before bottling, without fining or filtration.

Clos Apalta Chili 2014
I had it with cod. Very good. The first time I drank it with people from Clos Apalta.
I especially liked the colour. Notes of strawberry on the nose. On the palate was quite thick.
