Tasting notes

Engaging, intense aromas of Golden Delicious apple, classic of this wine, with refreshing notes of citrus and vibrant acidity. On the palate it is savory, with scents of fresh herbs like lemongrass in the summertime. The finish is long and creamy. Easy to drink and perfect with foods like tapas, seafood and light dishes.

Producer

MARIMAR ESTATE

Vinification and aging

Especially selected for fruit intensity and aromatics, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel to capture the purity of the flavors. After completing malolactic fermentation, the wine is kept in the tank until bottling in early spring.

Terroir

The vineyard is located in the Green Valley — the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River, only ten miles from the Pacific. The European-style high density of over 2,000 vines per acre provides low yields and requires intensive labor; but the vines live longer and the grapes acquire better balance and greater concentration, as well as more elegance and finesse than with the traditional low density.
