Mayu Pedro Ximenez is a stylish white wine that offers appealing floral and fruit aromas, with flavors balanced by fresh acidity, minerality and a long finish.
Seafood, shellfish, or on its own
Mayu Pedro Ximenez is grown both in the free-form ‘alberello’ style of vines as well as the traditional European ‘parral’ style of trellising. These vines have transitioned from Pisco producers to wine producers and now have much lower yields to increase the quality of the fruit. The grapes are hand harvested and then softly de-stemmed. They are crushed and gently pressed to separate the juice for fermentation and aged on the lees with batonnage.

More about Mayu
Mayu’s vineyards are located in the Elqui Valley, the earth’s driest dessert. The high elevation and clear skies around the property, make Mayu a prime location for star-gazing and is quite literally like stepping in to a new world. The Pedro Ximenez (yes that is the name of the grape) vineyard used to be harvested for its fruit to make Chilean pisco, but family members convinced them to start making a dry white wine with the grapes instead.
