Casa Lapostelle Cuvee Alexandre Merlot 2007(Apalta Vineyard, Colchagua)
Tasted 22/10/11 at with the Tews in Clapham. 14.5%, about £15 UK retail. This is a lovely wine, now coming into its stride. This is actually a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Carmenere from 60 year old vines. Deep purple colour, the nose is full of cassis and plums and other dark fruits. The palate is slightly spicy, with cherries and dark chocolate. Rich, silky tannins and a long finish. Chilean wine making at it best. Ridiculous value for money. 17.5 / 20, from 2012.
