The 2008 Carmenere Alto del Maipo Valley (100%) was fermented and aged in cement tank.

Deep purple in colour with legs that coat the glass, it offers up a superb aromatic array of herbs, exotic spices, truffle, a hint of balsamic, blueberry, and blackberry.

Plush, sweetly-fruited, complex, and pleasure-bent, this intense, powerful offering will benefit from 4-5 years of additional bottle age to fill out. It offers a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2023 and possibly longer.

Carmenere does not get much better than this.

Producer Information

Antiyal was founded in 1996 by Alvaro Espinoza and family. It is us here now– the family, writing this website and we shall be maintaining the harvest blog ourselves as well. Often referred to as the original ‘Garage Winery’ in Chile, today Antiyal has grown into a modest but personably sized winery that maintains a strict focus on quality. Antiyal is a Mapuche (native Chilean) word that means “sons of the sun”. We practice organic and biodynamic agricultural as a means to seek truer flavours from the earths that surround us in the Maipo Valley.

We founded Antiyal to teach our children, and all who would listen, about the earth, work & wine. In 1998 we produced ten barrels, or 250 cases ( bottles). It was a mix of Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon & Syrah. Later in 2001 we launched Kuyen, a blend of Syrah & Cabernet. Kuyen means “moon” in Mapuche. It is not a second wine, but a separate project with its own trajectory. Both wines are made respecting the ancient traditions and a holistic vision of people and the earth that is adroitly respected in today’s biodynamic agrictulture.

After a decade of healthy growth today we make 7.000 bottles of Antiyal and about 12,ooo more of Kuyen. It is still very much a family affair and we still craft each wine by hand on our small estate in the Maipo Valley that we call home.
