From the distributor-
Three sites for 2020. Two from the North Plains that the Marigny crew farms themselves with organic practices, including a variety of cover crops such as native flowers, edible greens and root vegetables. The third is Chehalem Mountains AVA and is farmed organically in collaboration with the owners.
Making of: all three grapes co-fermented in foudre, were dug out and then pressed back to foudre where they rested until bottling, some 10 months in total. A couple of 228-liter barrels of Sauvignon Blanc were blended into before bottling.
Personality: Life is sweet on this Sunny Side indeed! “Peach Rings, old brick-lined streets, guava for daze, what you want to believe drinks from an all-inclusive beach resort taste like, an August breeze in Audubon Park,” according to the winemaker himself.
