Marinus - 2011 Estate Blend
We are very proud of the results of the improvements our winemaking and vineyard team have put in place to insure that every bottle of Marinus represents the best possible expression of this unique vineyard.
To produce our Marinus wines, we follow traditional Bordeaux vinification methods. Each block of Marinus is farmed separately and picked at tits perfect moment of ripeness. All grapes are de-stemmed and hand sorted before being fermented in small individual fermenters. Each one is punched down or pumped over two times daily throughout the lengthy fermentation period. After a gentle pressing, the wines are transferred to small French oak barrels for malo-lactic fermentation and ageing for 18 months, when the final blends are created.
