Product Description:

Wine/Winemaking:
"Chateau Acappella is a big, indulgent wine with silky tannins and sweet black fruits that need some time to open up. Red and dark fruit on the mouthfeel, a full bodied and rich Bordeaux."

"Exacting attention by the winemaker ensuring gravity-led winemaking using only indigenous yeasts to begin fermentation, malolactic in barrels, no filtration or fining. The fruit is allowed extended hang time for the ripest Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes with extra care in selection of grapes with harvesting taking three times longer."

"The name Chateau Acappella was created to reflect the singular and sole focus on the fruit & the grape. The wine is produced in very small quantities using traditional methods. It involves meticulous concentration on the vine and the fruit with longer grape maturity, maniacal scrutiny on grape selection including longer harvesting (every grape is picked and destemmed by hand), and longer fermentation in new custom barrels."

"Chateau Acappella is a unique, exclusive, artisanal French Bordeaux exhibiting outstanding character." - Importer
