Guess how long this chardonnay was macerated for? 69 days? Nailed it! You must be fluent in Espanol. This skin contact is what makes this chardonnay an “orange” wine. The maceration adds complexity to the aromas/flavors, more tannins, and more body. The fruit is from 25 year old vines farmed on Vinedos Herrera Alvarado’s 1 hectare estate vineyard.
