Antawara Reserva Carménère 2019

13.50

Description

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.

Deep ruby red with violet tints, this Reserve Carménère is bursting with fruit and spice notes, red fruit and blueberries, with hints of toasted oak and vanilla. Full bodied and well balanced, with velvety tannins and a fine natural acidity, ripe fruit flavors intermingle with chocolate powder and exotic spices on a rounded and silky palate.

Great with pork loin or spicy dishes like lamb rogan josh.

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.
