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:
48% Carmenère, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot & 1% Petit Verdot.
Robert Parker's rating 95 points:
The 2017 Clos Apalta is the 20th vintage of this wine......This is always a powerful, big and ripe wine that is regularly 15% alcohol, reflecting a warm and ripe place. The 2017 is no exception, perhaps a riper and more powerful wine than the 2016. It's still very young and marked by the élevage, with abundant balsamic aromas and notes from the wood—spice and smoke with an ashy touch. It seems quite marked by the character of the Carmenere. The tannins are quite round and polished, and the flavors are pungent and powerful. It's a full-bodied wine to age in in bottle and enjoy in its 10th birthday with powerful food.
