Tasting notes: A beautifully dry Pedro Ximenez from the highest vineyard in Chile at 6,320 ft. Pale straw color with peach and melon on the nose. Very focused medium bodied palate with subtle stone-fruit and lots of minerals and spice that will appeal to Gruner Veltliner fans. Unoaked.
Producer: The Olivier family started Viña Mayu in 2005 and was the first to bring premium winemaking to northern Chile’s Elqui Valley. They chose the name "Mayu" - the Inca word for the Milky Way's "river of stars" – to honor the valley’s renownfor having the world’s clearest atmosphere and being the best place on earth for astronomy research. The inspiration for Mayu was to transform the extreme landscape to its full potential and produce premium wines from an otherwise overlooked terroir.
Vineyard and Winemaking: Part of the Coquimbo region, also with the Limari Valley, Elqui Valley is one of the northern wine producing regions of Chile, which historically focused on table grapes and pisco production. Intense sunlight and cooling effects of the ocean, together with rocky, clay soil make this one of Chile’s up-and-coming wine regions.
