Antawara Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
From Chile’s Maipo Valley, renowned for producing fine red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carménère. Grapes are cold-soaked and cool fermented in stainless steel prior to ageing in American oak barrels for around 8 months.
Bright ruby red in color, this Reserve Cabernet has intense aromas of ripe red berries, fruit compote and savoury spices such as a black pepper, cedarwood and clove. The palate is full and rounded, with lashings of toasted oak, vanilla and dark chocolate, powdery tannins and a touch of minerality extending to an impressively long finish.
Excellent with roast beef, goose fat spuds and Yorkshire puddings (we’ve done it!).

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.
