Exclusive agency or direct allocations

A charming winery in the Colchagua Valley situated on the Apalta hills, Clos Apalta Winery creates wines of brilliant quality. Alexandra Marnier-Lapostolle and her husband manage the winery, which has consistently risen to the top of reputable publications, a reflection of the winery's high standards and commitment to excellence. 

TASTING NOTES

Clos Apalta 2018 presents a deep and inky purple red robe with dark blue edges. The nose is intense, spicy overlapping with layers of red and black fruit, and cedar notes. On the palate, elegant tannins open towards a mid-palate that combines finesse and concentration, round and fresh. Exceptionally long finish.

"So aromatic and fresh with dried flowers, sweet tobacco and hints of straw. Red fruit, cloves and green peppercorns. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins that are very fresh and refined. Fine, silky and beautiful. Hints of minerals and granite to the dark fruit. Such gorgeous length and beauty. 64% carmenere, 18% cabernet franc and 18% merlot. Extremely long and poised. Cooler wine. From biodynamically grown grapes. Delicious to drink already, but another three to four years will make it even better." - James Suckling, 98 points.
