About Mujer Andina Wines:
Its a premium sparkling wine that was the first project by Mujer Andina Wines. It originated from the wish to create a high-quality product that would be different and original. Syrah, a non-traditional variety for sparkling wines was the chosen one, and its grapes were sourced from the emblematic Maipo Valley. They were grown 100% organically, thus showing responsibility towards the vineyard and the environment.
The grapes were harvested by hand with the right ripeness for a base wine. The first bunch selection was carried out at the vineyard and the fruit was later also selected on the sorting table. The grapes with their stems underwent a short pre-fermentative maceration to achieve a soft pink color. After a few hours, they were softly pressed to separate the free-run wine from the press wine. The must was fermented at low temperatures, between 12 and 15º C, in stainless steel tanks and using selected yeasts.
Once the fermentation was completed and before the wine was stabilized, it was kept for 6 to 8 months on its lees in stainless steel tanks. The second fermentation in the bottle took place according to the traditional or Champenoise method. The complete process took approximately 24 months, including 6 months resting time in the bottle before being released. Levita means to flow, to levitate… to be carried away by the experience of a different sparkling wine, organic and with great character.
Levita Brut Syrah Rosé belongs to the select group of sparkling wines made with 100% organic grapes and produced under the traditional or Champenoise method.
About the Winemaker

For more than a decade now, Chile, like other wine producing countries, has begun to show the world a new face. It is the so-called New Winegrowing Chile, created from the perspective of small producers and winemakers who believe in the diversity, quality and "specialty" of the terroir to which our project belongs.
The majesty of The Andes Mountains sets the frame that gives its name to this woman-led project. It represents the work of those of us who live on this side of the world, having the Andean range as a reference point for rich and diverse cultures and ethnic groups. But it also pays tribute to the women of South America who, as mothers, also work to make their dreams and those of their families come true, and are passionate about what they do and what they want to express as their legacy.
