The Marigny 2019 Carbonic Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA

Variety: 100% Pinot Gris

Winemaker: Andrew Reginald Young

Farming: Organic

Terroir: Composed of fruit from  two vineyards: 65% comes from our main site in North Plains, where 27-year-old own-rooted Pinot Gris vines intermingle with coastal winds and  Doug Fir trees at 900 ft elevation. The last 35% comes from a new  secondary site down the road a bit. It sits at 500 ft elevation, is  certified organic by Oregon Tilth, and has been farmed organic since day one. 

Vinification: 20+ day full Carbonic Maceration in stainless steel. Dug out, pressed and fermented to dryness in the same  tank the Carbonic Maceration occurred in. Bottled from a stainless holding tank after being racked. No fining, no filtration. 

Tasting notes: You'll find this wine is slightly darker in color than the 2018  vintage, and much more tannic. The incredibly cool growing season with a lower ABV (around 10.4%).  In the end, more than any other Marigny wine  from 2019, this is a food wine, and especially a food wine with creamy  things like cheese, yogurt-based dips, Caesar salads and - dare we say -  strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped cream. So gather ‘round your  backyard table with a summer bounty and celebrate our little rough and  tumble child, the 2019 Pinot Gris, Carbonic Maceration.
