"Clos Apalta, depending on your point of view,
is arguably Chile’s best wine."
- The Wine Enthusiast
Clos Apalta is located at 170 Kilometers South West of Santiago in the Colchagua Valley. The winemaking philosophy at Clos Apalta is to respect the purity of the fruit that comes from their very best blocks. A truly hand crafted wine, they nurture the vines and attend to every detail to preserve the potential of the grapes. The fruit is hand harvested very early in the morning in small cases. The grapes are 100% hand de-stemmed in the Clos Apalta Winery so complete control of the quality is maintained (this is a labor intensive technique performed by only a few wineries throughout the world). They fill their 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 28°C. The young new wine is racked straight into 100% new French oak barrels by gravity. Malolactic-fermentation happens in barrels, where the wine stays for 24 months, ageing patiently. The wine is bottled by gravity without any treatment or filtration.
The 2007 is a blend of 61% Carmenère; 24% Cabernet Sauvignon; 12% Merlot; 3% Petit Verdot. The 2008 is made up of 73% Carmenère; 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. Enjoy Clos Apalta with cheese, game, lamb, or even a rich, chocolate dessert.
