"COLOR Intense and deep ruby red with purple and cherry edges.NOSE Complex and expressive. Very intense with black fruit such as maqui berry, cassis and black currant aromas. Red fruit aromas such as cherries and strawberry with fresh herb notes and a touch of vanilla. Spices and cedar notes.PALATE Big structure and good volume, balance with a remarkable acidity.Our Petit Clos was hand harvested in small cases of 12 kilos. The grapes are then hand de-stemmed in our Clos Apalta Winery so we maintain complete control of the quality. We fill our fermentation French oak vats by gravity. We use native yeast to ferment the grape juice into wine, with temperature control max. 28°C. Macerations lasted for a maximum of 6 weeks and during that period we did gentle manual punch downs to extract enough compounds from skins to get the desired structure and concentration. We rack the young new wine straight into 100% new French oak barrels by gravity. Natural malolactic occurred in the barrels, where the wine stayed for 6 months. After that, we did the selection of the lots for the wine and the first racking. The wine was then aged for another 17 months in 20% New French Oak barrels, 32% in second used French oak barrels and 48% in third used French oak barrels. We estate bottled the wine by gravity without any treatment or filtration.
