Marichiweu means in Mapudungun language, language of the original peoples, “Ten times we will win”, a warrior people who know that true strength comes from the union and support of many, and the constant passion for what one does. In our roots there are generations of effort with hands cracked like ancestral trocos, of great crystalline purity like this wine.
Some fourth centuries ago, when distillates were still the stuff of alchemists, British wine importers working in Portugal noticed that if they enriched the wines with added alcohol, the wine reached its destination well. Even better than how it had been pumped – it was not exported in bottles, but in barrels or pipes. And so, like someone who doesn’t want it, Porto came to England and the world.
In all fortified wines, strictly speaking, it is in the addition of alcohol to provide resistance and power. You need a wine or base must whose grace is supreme, both because it has good freshness and because it offers a sophisticated sweetness. The process is simple: adding alcohol to it during fermentation paralyzes the process and leaves the wine with a quantity of residual sugar such that it compensates for the fire of the alcohol. In this way, the Pinot Noir de las Dichas, in Casablanca is an excellent wine due to the aromatic intensity it reaches, due to its slow maturation.
