Maipe is the ancient Andean Indian Lord of the Winds, and
this wine effectively melds in a nice spring mountain breeze
into it's taste. It's not overpowering, and because of it's
'clean' taste reminds me somewhat of a Pinot Grigio, but I
surmise that I am actually getting a vegetal and grassy
taste. The citrus aspect comes a few seconds after the wine
first hits your tongue, and if it were just a little
different, you might think petrol, but it's actually a nice
taste, perfect for seafood, light fare and fresh fruit.
Don't let this wine fool you, as it also has a robust
alcohol content to it, which the taste doesn't convey to
you. This wine is a knockout!
