Winemaker's Notes:

Among the very best wines being produced in South America, a "garage wine" from the celebrated Chilean winemaker Álvaro Espinoza.

Made with an organic blend of Carmenère (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), and Syrah (10%). Aged in French barrels for twelve months, then cellared in the bottle for six months.

About Antiyal:

Álvaro Espinoza is one of the finest winemakers in South America today, as well as one of the foremost biodynamic winemakers in the world. His celebrated wine Antiyal is often referred to as Chile's first "garage wine." Antiyal produces fewer than 400 cases of wine a year in the sleepy Maipo Valley town of Alta Jahuel.
