Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 vintage has an intense and complex aroma of dark fruit and mineral notes. The palate is rich and concentrated with volume, balance and a lingering, soft finish. This 100% Maipo Valley estate fruit is hand harvested and is a blend of 41% Carmenère, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Syrah.

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.
