Description

Lapostolle Collection Petit Verdot is a limited release wine made from 100% Petit Verdot grapes sourced from the Lapostolle’s famous Apalta vineyard in the Valle de Colchagua. The Lapostolle Collection range is an experimental range of wines which is something a bit different from the norm. There is also a Mourvedre and a Carignan in the range.

Lapostolle owns 370 hectares spread over three different vineyards and which have gradually been turned over to organic production. On September 30, 2011, the registered and accredited German-based environmental certification company CERES – Certification of Environmental Standards – authorized all Lapostolle estates in compliance with Chilean, North American, and European required standard. All wines from the 2012 vintage onwards can be classifed as organic.

Lapostolle Collection Petit Verdot Unfiltered is designed to be an expression of what a hand-crafted single varietal Petit Verdot from Chile can achieve. The Petit Verdot grapes are from the Apalta vineyard in the Colchagua Valley. It is situated on a north-south exposure, has a river on one side, and hills surrounding the rest of the vineyard like a horseshoe. The Petit Verdot vines are planted on shallow coluvial granitic soils on steep hillsides with south-eastern exposure. The bunches were destemmed by hand, then given an eight-day cold soak at 10ºC. The must fermented with wild yeasts in small vats, with gentle hand plunging. The wine was transferred to six-year-old French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and thirteen months’ further ageing. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered, with just 1,137 bottles produced in total.

The 2015 Lapostolle Collection Petit Verdot  is 90% Petit Verdot and 10% Grenache.
