Clos Apalta is a prestige brand owned by Casa Lapostolle, one of Chile's high-profile wineries. A pair of wines are made from fruit grown at the vineyard at Apalta in the Colchagua Valley.
While the main Casa Lapostolle winery is located in Cunaco, Clos Apalta has its own facility in the vineyard. This is a gravity-fed winery built on seven levels into the mountainside. The roof of its circular vat room is inspired by the staves of a barrel.
There are 60 hectares (150 acres) planted in an amphitheater between 150 and 300 meters altitude. There are also multiple soil types – these and the differences in elevation give many different microterroirs.
The oldest parcels were planted between 1915 and 1920 from stocks imported from France at the turn of the century.
Country of Origin:
Apalta Valley, Colchagua, Chile
64% Carmenère, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot
Robert Parker's rating 96 points:
The aroma reveals spice, tobacco leaves, red fruit and floral notes without noticeable alcohol or excess ripeness. The oak is surprisingly well integrated for such a young wine, and there is harmony, concentration and balance to make it age in bottle for a long time. The palate is full-bodied, and the tannins are fine-grained and in balance with the rest of the components, coming through as a compact and powerful yet elegant red. This has to be one of the finest Clos Apaltas of all time.
