Lapostolle Casa Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Young and expressive; bright and vivid, define the characteristics of Lapostolle's Casa wines. Brilliant, pale lime-yellow color. Intense fruit aromas of sweet citrus, tropical fresh fruit, and mineral notes. Light and fresh palate, with pleasant roundness and a grassy finish. Perfect for fresh vegetable salads, seafood, or appetizers.
93% Sauvignon Blanc, 7% Semillon. 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. Today, Lapostolle owns 914 acres in three different vineyards, produces an annual total of 200,000 cases, and is distributed in more than 60 countries around the world. At Lapostolle, to capture the freshness of the fruit is their mission. Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle is the great granddaughter of the creator of the French liqueur Grand Marnier. In 1994, she chose the world-renowned vineyards of Chile as the birthplace for Lapostolle.
