2020 Pinot Gris Direct Press Sur Lie
Taste / Feel:
First dates on warm spring days, lemon snowballs, eating fruit with your feet in the grass, healing crystals such as quartz, Cae Sal, opening your mouth on a sunny day and letting the rays fall in like a faucet
700 - 800ft elevation, own-rooted, dry-farmed, Pinot Gris on loess soils. Farmed without glyphosate, herbicides, or pesticides. Cover crop of native plants / flowers, poppys, root vegetables and edible leafy greens
Whole cluster Pinot Gris pressed directly on stems with no breaking of the berries prior to going to press. Juice was “browned” at the press pan with no SO2 added and sent directly into neutral barrels where spontaneous fermentation occurred. Malolactic fermentation also occurred naturally, after which the barrels were topped and sulfured between 8ppm and 22ppm, according to taste. Wine was on gross lees until bottling, at which point the barrels were racked and blended into a stainless steel tank. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Our grapes are hand-harvested by a crew you can count on one hand.
The only things that go into Marigny wines are hand harvested grapes, ambient yeast, and time.
An untracable amount of sulfites are added, while bottling, to protect the wine as it moves from barrel to bottle
All bottles are 750ML and weigh approximately 4lbs
These wines are for enjoying but, inbetween enjoyings, they should be stored in a cellar like environment at around 55°
For varietals you enjoy chilled, toss them in the fridge for 30-45 minutes before you pop the top, but don't leave them in the fridge too long, over chilling can mute the flavor profile.
