Ramirana, Apalta Vineyard Red Blend
Apalta Vineyard Red Blend

 

Tasting Notes: Master winemaker Felipe Toso loves the cultish appelation of Apalta in the high mountains of Chile. He loves it because each year, he is able to break new ground both qualitatively and geographically. Every vintage brings about new, and inexorably greater results from Chile’s most promising red wine zone; and each year, the rows of vines grow farther, higher and deeper into the mountains, rejoicing in the high terrain microclimates. Ramirana Apalta Red Blend is rich and full-bodied, yet has a high-altitude cleanliness and elegance that delivers great structure, acidity and length. A Chilean powerhouse!
