Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Rich purple red color.

Nose: Expressive red fruit notes, layered by spices and sweet notes from the oak.

Palate: Smooth tannins but showing a good structure and well balanced acidity. Nice and pleasant finish.

Pairing: Serve from 16° C (60° F) to 18° C (64° F). The ideal companion for pastas, pork and grilled red meat.

In creating Lapostolle, the family has pursued the same uncompromising approach to quality that make Grand Marnier a global success. Its objected is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French expertise and superb terroirs of Chile. Today, Lapostolle owns 370 hectares in three different vineyards and produces a total of 200,000 cases spread over Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenere and Syrah.
