Antiyal Alto del Maipo Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Mr. Espinoza and family founded his biodynamic and organic "garage winery" in the Maipo Valley 18 years ago. Although twice the price of the other Carménères, this single-vineyard red is much more rich and textured, with soft plush tannins and aromas of dark chocolate, spice and a hint of green olive." - Wall Street Journal

56% Carmenere, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Syrah Black plums framed with pencil shavings and some fresh herbs and nettles dominate the nose though a nice undercurrent of strawberry-rhubarb compote adds depth and complexity here. Big, smooth and frankly a bit taut in the mouth, this combines richness with grace as it gently floats across the palate. This seems quite young and unevolved with it’s tight core of gentle oak framed black currant and black raspberry fruit that seem to struggle to get noticed today. A streak of vanilla appears on the backend and leads to a long, gently tannic finish that sees fine, fresh black cherry and wild blackberry fruit emerge on the finale. This needs time and is very fine but to a certain extent it’s a texture wine in the way that many of the super tuscans are. It’s a wine of refinement more than anything else. 91pts

Robert Parker 93 Points 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. The three vineyards are small, completing 8 hectares in total of vineyards, allowing fine work in the vines. Grapes : Carmenere 90%, Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Region : Chile / Maipo Alto Maker : Alvaro Espinoza Notes : Ripe super intense nose. Layers of flavour almost sweet but finishing dry and complex. ABV : 14.50%
