Intense aromas of plums and raspberries, with subtle undertones of smoke and vanilla. Long persistence with smooth, complex tannins.
Vina Casa Marin is owned and run with single minded determination by the indominatable Maria Luz Marin. The vineyards and winery are based in the small village of Lo Abarca, in the San Antonio Valley. In a recent article by Wine & Spirits Magazine the twenty five hectare estate was described as the most radical vineyard site in the country. The resulting single vineyard wines are quite unique in flavour and concentration. Casa Marin is widely regarded as producing the finest, most complex and most thrilling wines in South America.
In the Vineyard
Located on the gentle slope that surrounds the town of Lo Abarca, with western exposure facing the ocean. The soil is mainly calcerous with a small percentage of clay and lime, and the climate is quite windy, which results in lower grape productivity and improved quality. Grapes are harvested by hand in mid April.
In the Winery
100% barrel fermentation and 100% malolactic fermentation in 60% new French oak. The wines are barrel aged for 14 months on its lees and bottled unfiltered to preserve the full expression of the wine.
