Tasting note:

Like a sunflower is a light lemon yellow colour. The nose is bright, fresh and lovely showing lemon flesh, lime, touches of gooseberry and grass and a distinct note of nutty sherry from the Pedro Ximenez.

The palate is a wonderful blend of freshness, crisp acidity, weighty citrus fruits and a lingering richness. This is an elegant and well-made wine, the unusual blend working very well.

About the wine:

Like a sunflower is an unusual blend of two grapes; Pedro Ximenez (known for making very sweet, raisin tasting sherry) and Sauvignon blanc. The blend however works wonderfully showing great finesse, elegance and intrigue

About the producer:

The Olivier family started Viña Mayu in 2005 and were the first to bring winemaking to the Elqui Valley. They honour the place and its history with the name of the winery - "Mayu" is the Inca word for the Milky Way's “river of stars”. The driving force for Mayu was transforming a tract of extreme terroir with enormous poten􀆟al into a vineyard producing premium wines.
