The Clos Apalta luxury cuvee, primarily based on an old vine, non-irrigated Carmenere parcel, remains one of Chile’s standard-bearers. Herbal, minty aromas of candied black fruits are found in the aromatic profile of the 2000 Clos Apalta. A feminine, detailed wine, it exhibits a medium to full-bodied character filled with pure red as well as black cherry fruit. Fresh, lively, and lush, this outstanding effort displays a slightly firm finish that will require some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012.

Wine maker notes
Our winemaking philosophy is to reflect the terroir from Apalta by crafting a wine based in Carmenère, with Merlot and Cabernet. A truly hand crafted wine, we nurture our vines and attend to every detail to preserve the potential of the grapes. We hand harvest the fruit very early in the morning in small 14 kilos cases. The grapes were 100% hand de-stemmed in our Clos Apalta Winery so we maintain complete control of the quality. We fill our French oak tanks by gravity. Then nature does its work, allowing native yeasts that slowly ferment the must into wine with temperature control less than 26° C. Macerations lasted for about 4-5 weeks and during all that period we did manual punch downs to extract enough compounds from skins and seeds to get the desired structure and concentration. We rack the young new wine straight into 100% new French oak barrels by gravity. Malolactic fermentation happens in barrels, where the wine stays for 22 months, ageing patiently. The wine is bottled by gravity without any treatment or filtration.
