More about this wine from Elqui Valley, Chile
The Olivier family is credited with being the first to bring premium winemaking to the Elqui Valley of northern Chile. This part of Chile is a desert and known for some of the best stargazing in the world. Mayu is a word from the Inca civilization that literally means "river of stars"! Under this river of stars is a perfect place to grow grapes and make wine aka warm days and cool nights with a salty ocean breeze = awesome juice.

The juice is made from the grape dubbed Pedro Ximenez, which is originally from Spain and made its way to Chile via the Conquistadors. The Mayu project started in 2005 and is made from a single vineyard that is harvested by hand in the middle of the night during harvest. The juice is quite floral balanced with stone fruits like peaches balanced with a chalky river stone minerality.

It's time to finally learn how to make some curried mussels like you order at happy hour because when you pair shellfish with this wine, then you'll have happy hour any time you want... at home.
