Lapostolle Grand Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

Valle del Rapel is located in the central part of Chile. It exhibits a semi-arid Mediterranean climate with warm and dry days and pleasantly cool nights during the growing season, as a result of cold breezes coming from the Andes. Rapel has also a cool influence from the Pacific’s Humboldt Current, which lowers temperatures in the coastal areas of the valley. This leads to warm days with ample sunlight and dry conditions, allowing for a slow ripening period that produce Cabernets with an expressive nose and a pleasant structure.

Certified Carbon Neutral.
