Antiyal - Pura Fe 2020
In 1996 Alvaro Espinoza founded Antiyal, which means "sons of the sun" in Mapuche (native Chilean). The estate is known as one of the leading organic and biodynamic producers in the country. Originally a small, "garage" winery, Antiyal has grown to a larger, but still personable size, producing wines from Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Garnacha. The Pura Fe vineyards are located in the Maipo Valley, totaling 9.4 hectares of vineyards. All grapes are organically and biodynamically grown with balanced irrigation and careful canopy management.
Antiyal's Pura Fe Carmenere is made from 88% Carmenere and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. All grapes are fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks, pressed into 3-4 year old French oak barrels and aged for 10-12 months before bottling. The wine is a pure and well-defined example of Carmenere exhibiting classic blue fruits and spice with supple tannins, firm acidity and a long, structured finish. Enjoy with spicy beef dishes or stuffed peppers .
