It's back! This hazy, aromatic orange wine is once of Cacique's most popular wines and for good reason. It is delicious every year!
Vineyard Notes: Vineyards are comprised of volcanic sand formed by redeposited ash (known in Chile as trumao) and are dry farmed without any chemical intervention. Many of Cacique Maravilla's vines are well over 100 years old and have been in the care of Manuel Moraga's family for generations.
Winemaking Notes: Skin contact lasts 2 months in open vats of Raulí (native Chilean pink oak) without any punch downs or pump overs. The wine is then transferred to fiberglass tanks for an additional 10 months of aging. The wine is bottled unfiltered and without added sulfites.
