Marimar Estate La Masia Russian River Chardonnay

Wine: Marimar Estate ‘La Masia’ Chardonnay

Producer: Marimar Estate

Country: USA

Region: California / Russian River Valley

Vintage: 2018

Style: White

Notes: La Masía means ‘The Farmhouse’ in Catalonia, Marimar Torres’ home region, & the winery at Marimar is designed to resemble a classic Catalan farmhouse.

A blend of 3 different Chardonnay clones go into this wine &  there is an engaging fragrance of spice, peach & nuts. On the palate there are hints of classic green apple & tropical papaya. An oppulent, rich & creamy wine yet fresh & crisp at the same time. Long, creamy finish helped by 9 months barrel-ageing.

 

Producer Info: With a family history of winemaking that dates back to 1870, it was maybe not surprising that Marimar Torres, sister of the legendary Miguel Torres, would continue the family’s legacy of producing exceptional wines.

In 1981 she started the search for the perfect property to plant a vineyard, & – after two years of searching – she bought 25 hectares of land in Sonoma County, close to the town of Sebastopol in the Russian River Valley appellation, an area which arguably produces the finest Pinot Noir in all of California. Today the Don Miguel Vineyard encompasses 50 planted acres. About 20 are planted with Chardonnay, 20 with Pinot Noir, five with Albariño, five with Tempranillo, two with Syrah & one with an experimental block of Godello.

Building on the success of her first enterprise Marimar then decided to buy a magnificent new 180- acre property in the Sonoma Coast appellation, naming the vineyard ‘Dona Margarita’ in honour of her mother. Only 20 acres are planted, all of which are Pinot Noir. The rest of the estate is a dedicated conservation area which is protected from any future development so that wildlife can thrive.

As a passionate believer in the environment, Marimar has employed sustainable practices in her vineyards & the winery. The property is 100% solar powered & she has taken her environmental commitment further by developing biodynamic farming methods across her entire estate. Ecological farming methods have been employed across all of the vineyards since 2003 & the estate was granted full organic certification in 2006. Since then the estate has evolved & now employs a completely sustainable method of viticulture which regards the property as one single ecosystem.
