As the name suggests this wine is the ultimate expression of wine from La Vierge, the epitome of our efforts both in the vineyard and the winery.
The Apogée series from La Vierge epitomizes the very best expression of terroir from their beautiful vineyards. It is a vineyard site driven wine that emphasizes the subtle differences in altitude, aspect, clonal expression and soil that make our vineyards unique. Minimal winemaking intervention is utilized to allow the vines to speak for themselves.
The wine shows the dark fruit expression of dark plum, cherry and violet aromas. There is a typical Hemel & Aarde savory and spice expression of cloves, cracked black pepper, and coriander seed. It has a well-textured palate and vibrant acidity which balances the front palate fruit weight. The oaking is supportive on the palate and helps carry the finish of soft forest floor and spicy notes.
