2018 Marimar Estate Albariño 'Don Miguel Vineyard'
Russian River Valley, California
100% Albariño. Fresh, lively and mouthfilling, with bright acidity that follows through with an elegant, crisp finish.
The Don Miguel Vineyard Named after the late patriarch of the Torres family, this vineyard is located in the Green Valley — the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River Valley, only ten miles from the Pacific. The Albariño is trained in a cordon style with alternating spurs, which adds width to the fruit zone and provides optimum air flow and light quality.
The grapes were harvested September 18-22, then gently whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel. After the primary fermentation, the wine went 100% through malolactic fermentation and was bottled in March 2019. 1058 cases were produced.
