Antawara Carménère 2020

11.50

Description

Hand-picked in Chile’s oldest and most famous growing area, these grapes are cold-soaked and cool fermented in stainless steel to accentuate the fruit flavours, followed by a short maturation period prior to fining and bottling. There’s no oak involvement here, this is all about the fruit.

This Carménère is deep ruby red in color with purple tints, showing bright red fruits, blackberries, vanilla and black pepper aromas. A ripe, medium-bodied palate reveals lovely blackberry, chocolate and smoked meat flavours, velvety tannins and a fine natural acidity, with a long, balanced finish.

Pairs well with spicy dishes, curries and Thai foods.

Producer: Antawara

Antawara is a young winery, only founded in 2006 by talented winemaker Jaime Muñoz. Jaime had worked as a winemaker for large wineries in both Chile and France before deciding the time was right to set up his own venture. In 2019, the company acquired a new winery in the foothills of the Andes, 100km south of Santiago, and entered the top 20 of Chilean exporters.

Vineyards are centred around the Maipo Valley, an historic wine region going back 500 years from the original colonial plantations, and renowned for producing fine red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carménère. Hot summer days are followed by cold nights, old vineyards on the stony slopes of the sheltered foothills providing the perfect growing conditions.
