CHATEAU
Alvaro Espinoza is a Chilean legend. He and his wife Marina run the first Boutique Garage winery in Chile. They were the first to be certified Biodynamic and they have all sorts of wildlife in the vineyards including Llamas. Antiyal Vineyards are located in the Maipo Valley, in three different locations, in Huelquen at the foothills of the Alto Maipo, another property in El Escorial and the third property in Isla de Maipo.
At Antiyal they practice organic and biodynamic agricultural as a means to seek truer flavours from the earth’s that surround them in the Maipo Valley. They tend to the plant vigour row by row by using very little irrigation and canopy management. Yields are about 4 tonnes per hectare and this allows for a holistic maturing of the fruit both in bricks and tannin. The applying of composts produced with organic composts and manure from their own farm complete the natural cycle of nutrition lending fertility and balanced health to the vineyard. All of the vineyards of Antiyal (and Kuyen) are farmed in a sustainable manner.

43% Carmenere, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Syrah
The grapes are hand harvested and selected before the crushing. The grapes are fermented in small stainless steel vats (2 to 5 tons), the fermentation is done by wild native yeasts, conduced at 26 to 28 ºC, with softs pumping overs and a long maceration of an average of 26 days in total before pressing. The wine is racked to French barrels 80% new and 20% 1 year old to make the malolactic fermentation and ageing.
After one year in French barrels the wine is bottled, and aged 6 months in the cellar prior to release.
Antiyal, shows a deep dark colour, with intense aromas of berries, dark fruit, earthy and minerals notes giving clean expression and character. The character of the wood is well integrated to the wine. In the palate the wines has good concentration, with volume and body, well balanced and ripe soft tannins in the finished.
Antiyal has been a Wine Spectator favorite ever since its release in 2000, earning 90+ points for every vintage.
93 pts - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - International Wine Cellar 92 points - Wine Enthusiast 91 points
