Lapostolle Grand Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Lapostolle Grand Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is made from fruit sourced from vineyards in Chile's Rapel Valley. 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. Sixty per cent of the wine was aged in French oak barrels (second, third and fourth use) for 6 months while the remaining 40% was aged in stainless steel tanks.

Ruby red in colour the Grand Selection Cabernet Sauvignon (with an addition of Syrah) displays fresh red fruit aromas such as strawberry and plum with a spicy expression of cardamom and red paprika. The palate offers medium acidity and juicy tannins with a ripe plum aftertaste.
