White dry wine "Origen" Chardonnay Gran Reserva - a bright representative of the Chilean wines. Hand-picked grapes are pressed, then left for 8 hours in steel vats for maceration. After that, the wine is subjected to alcoholic fermentation with the addition of selected yeast at a temperature of 14-15 ºC. 60% of the wine is fermented in steel tanks, and the remaining 40% - in French oak barrels.
