(2018) The MacMurray Ranch is former home of Hollywood film star Fred MacMurray, now a wine estate in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma in California, and today owned by the Gallo family. The region is most famed for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but this Pinot Gris is very attractive, the nose suffused with a fig and quince richness, and a warming layer of baked apple as well as some spiciness. In the mouth it has loads of sweet, ripe fruit, a little toasty underpinning suggesting some lees ageing, but very good orange acidity that gives the wine's considerible length and concentration very good balance to the finish. Watch the video for more information and food-matching ideas.
(2016) Another organic and biodynamic wine from the Russian River, barrel fermented and aged (40% new, French oak from Alliers), this has Marimar's signature refinement and composure, the sheen of oak carefully handled, still allowing plenty of expressive citrus and nutty apple fruit, just hinting at the tropical. On the palate good fruit sweetness immediately, then the creamy, vanilla oak fills in, but so does a gentle acidity into an easy-drinking, balanced finish.
