Seasonal update from Casa Lapostolle winery in Chile:
“Spring has arrived in its full splendor in the vineyards of Casa Lapostolle. We already have temperatures of 25°C (77°F)
during the day that go down to 5°C (41°F) at night. This is an ideal situation for the good growth of the vines.
As a result of a few days of light rain, this year budburst has been excellent.
In our “Atalayas” vineyard in Casablanca, it is a pleasure to look at the hills covered with an intense green canopy,
they seem to be waves at sea, where each plot has been planted in a specific position to capture the best of the sunrays.
There, the breeze of the Pacific Ocean also influences that special flavor of the Cuvée Alexandre Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
In the “Apalta” vineyard, we have planted 20 new hectares and it is very good to see that it is growing healthily, some of them
at the foot of the hills and others very near to where we have 50-100 year-old vines that form the base of our icon wine Clos Apalta.
We couldn’t ask for better and we are very happy to be able to share it with you.”
