(2021) Made only in stainless steel ('Acero') with no oak contact, Marimar selects the most intense fruit from the coolest, ocean-influenced sites for this cuvée. The nose has a gentle creaminess, presumably from some lees ageing, nutty and creamy apple fruit and a zesty hint of lemon. On the palate good bite and freshness here, clarity to the fruit and acidity, which is well-balanced without being aggressive. It's a wine that does not have the sharp precision of the best Chablis (unsurprisingly) and arguably should or could be a few pounds cheaper in my opinion, but it is elegant, restrained and delicious.
(2015) Again a richness of the oak here, with a blast of citrus. Plenty of oak and a sunny disposition to this, suggesting perhaps a warmer climate - Australia or California? Lovely fruit forward stuff, perhaps a little more obvious than the other wines, a little more bountiful, perhaps a little more alcoholic too. But beautifully done. Tasted blind.
