About

Product Description:

From the Importers' Website: Maipe was the Lord of the Winds for the ancient Andean Indians. He is still called upon to clear the skies after heavy rain, or to temper the summer heat. The nose reveals dried plum & dark fruits, exotic spices, with hints of violet & chocolate. Round & fleshy, with enticing crushed plum & boysenberry fruit enlivened by a liquorice snap note. Fresh acidity lies buried on the medium-weight, juicy finish. The grapes are carefully chosen & fermented in small lots to preserve the vineyard identity. Alcoholic fermentation for 12 days with indigenous & selected yeasts, at temperatures of 26 & 30°C, combining, remontage, pigage & delestage in order to obtain the best quality of tannins & structure.
