One of our favorite hidden gems, The Wine Buyer first discovered the Mayu Winery back in 2014 when The Wine Advocate released reviews on what they dubbed the "New Chile." Back then, Mayu had the top rated white wine listed under $15 with a stunning Pedro Ximenez that made editor Luis Gutierrez say Mayu "offers mind-boggling quality and character at unbelievable prices."

They've built on that initial success with a fantastic 2014 Sauvignon Blanc. Intensely aromatic, dry white wine with ripe citrus notes and green apple flavors with crisp acidity. It's best served with a range of foods including grilled fish and seafood, but can also be enjoyed as a refreshing aperitif.

Rating
"As with the PX, I also tasted the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, and the warmer growing season seems to have amplified the herbal aromas with notes leaning towards the asparagus and green bean spectrum; this is definitely riper because of lower yields, as the region is suffering a severe drought. The style is therefore a little different, and it's more a matter of personal taste. There is more concentration here and the saline component is also more evident. Today, I give the edge to this 2015. A great value." The Wine Advocate, 90 Points

Wine maker notes
The Olivier family started Vina Mayu in 2005 as an independent family winery in the desert region of Elqui. The Elqui Valley is known for least amount of precipitation in the world, bordering the Atacama Desert, the best place in the world for stargazing because there is so little water vapor in the atmosphere. They honor the place and its history with the name of the winery, "Mayu" the Incan word for the Milky Way's river of stars. The driving force for starting this winery was a passion for the challenge of transforming a desert with enormous potential into a vineyard producing premium wines.
