Lapostolle Casa Merlot 2013
Lapostolle invites you to make Casa wines a part of your life. These wines have youthful and bright characteristics—perfect for any occasion. This merlot was partially aged six months in small, French oak barrels, and has red-fruit flavors, intense aromas, and lush texture. It is well structured and the finish is spicy. The wine can age in the bottle for up to 10 years.
85% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 5% Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot. In founding Casa Lapostolle, Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle continues a unique family legacy of fine wine and liqueur production—for six generations her family has produced the world-renowned Grand Marnier liqueur. In 1994, she chose the pristine vineyards of Chile (in the town of Cunaco, right next to Santa Cruz) as the birthplace for Lapostolle. With a traditional, Chilean-hacienda style, it has a production capacity of 3,3500,000 liters in stainless steel and French oak tanks, and more than 3,500 French oak barrels.
