More about this wine from Elqui Valley, Chile
The Olivier family started Viña Mayu in 2005 and is the first business to bring premium winemaking to northern Chile’s Elqui Valley. This part of the world is known for some of the most gorgeous stargazing possible, and Mayu is actually an Incan word for the Milky Way. While Chile is producing some top-notch vino, your taste buds might get confused by the juice's Italian winemaking characteristics.

On the nose, the juice brings a big and vibrant blackberry and plum punch. The sipping is velvety and it's like ripe fruits invited some additional guests to the party including a pinch of spice and a dash of vanilla. This party is getting cozy near a big fireplace with a bundle of sage tossed in with the wood.
