We are very proud of the results from our winemaking and vineyard team.  They have ensured that every bottle of Marinus represents the very best expression of this special vineyard.

 

To produce our Marinus wines, we follow traditional Bordeaux vinification methods.  Each block of Marinus if farmed separtely and picked at its perfect moment of ripeness.  All grapes are hand sorted and de-stemmed before being fermented in small individual fermenters.  Each one is punched down or pumped over twice 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 blend is created.
