Not what I expected of a SB at all! Pale yellow color, nice fruity nose. This wine is obviously made from ripe fruit. Not as tart and attention-getting as many SBs but round, fruity and pleasant - especially at this price! - JRH
There must be some technical erro for the pricing. You have a single bottle listed for $124, and the case listed for $139!!!!!!
Somehow, the case looks like a better deal.
Thank you for letting us know. This has been fixed :)
Wine Maker Notes
Lapostolle was founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. The Marnier Lapostolle family, founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier, is famous for producing spirits and liqueurs, but the family has also been involved in winemaking for generations. In creating Lapostolle, the family has pursued the same uncompromising approach to quality that made Grand Marnier a global success. Its objective is as simple as it is ambitious: to create world-class wines using French expertise and the superb terroirs of Chile
100% of our Sauvignon Blanc from Las Kuras vineyard was hand-harvested at night. We began night harvest with the 2009 vintage because it allowed us to enhance the fruit and the freshness of the wine (in addition to saving some cooling energy at the cellar). At this point of the process, we do all we can to preserve the fruit and acidity. Natural decantation in tanks followed, with slow and low temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks and 1 month of ageing in lees. We added 7% of Semillon coming from old vines of Apalta: the result is more complexity in the nose and a rounder mid palate, to produce a very charming wine with crisp acidity and intense flavors.
