Winemaker Notes

This celebrated bio-dynamic wine is of-ten referred to as Chile's first "garage wine." The 2010 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. The 100% Maipo Valley estate fruit is hand harvested and is a blend of 47% Carmenere, 24% Syrah, and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged one year in French oak barrels, then bottled and aged for an additional six months in the cellar prior to release.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Antiyal is a blend of 47% Carmenere, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Syrah. It has a very well defined bouquet with blackberry leaf, crushed stone, and limestone. This is very expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with super-fine tannins. It is very well balanced with grace and poise towards the natural, refined blackberry and sea salt tinged finish. This is another beautiful wine from Alvaro.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Roasted, spicy and gritty aromas are common for this Carmenère-led blend from Alvaro Espinoza. The palate is full and ripe, with tannic grip. Flavors of buttery oak, vanilla, blackberry and olive lead to a toasty finish, with mocha and bitter chocolate notes. Overall, it's an oaky, ripe, strong-boned Maipo wine to drink now–2017.

Álvaro Espinoza is one of the finest winemakers in South America today, as well as one of the foremost biodynamic winemakers in the world.

Maipo Valley

View all wine

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
