Winemaker's Notes:

Antiyal 2008 shows a deep dark color with intense aromas of berries, dark fruit, earth and mineral notes giving clean expression and character. The character of the wood is well-integrated with the wine. In the palate the wine has good concentration, volume and body, with well-balanced and soft tannins in the finish.

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.
