Region: Elqui Valley, Chile
With a name taken from the Incan word for the Milky Way, it is not surprising that the grapes used in Mayu’s wines come from high elevation plantings in Chile. Though they nearly touch the stars, this wine is surprisingly down-to-earth. Incredibly juicy, it packs in flavors of ripe blackberry and plum, along with earthy spice and vanilla. Try it with a Mediterranean fare or anything off the grill!
