Lapostolle Le Rouge 2013

Le Rouge from Lapostolle is a wonderful red wine blend of Syrah (30%), Carménère (27%), Cabernet Sauvignon (22%) and Merlot (21%) grapes, cultivated in Chiles Rapel Valley. The hand harvested grapes are carefully transported to the winery where only the best fruit is selected using state-of-the-art "Vistalys" optical berry selection technology. The wine is aged for 12 months in a mix of new, second and third use French oak barrels and there is no clarification and only very light filtration, in a quest to create an authentic wine of natural balance.

Brilliant red purple in colour Le Rouge offers up red fruit aromas such as cranberries and sweet spices alongside notes of black pepper, chocolate and tobacco. The palate is elegant with well integrated tannins and bitter chocolate and coffee notes leading to a long persistent finish.
