Casa Marín wine tasting
September 8, 2015
Casa Marín Cipreses Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Pale lemon-green, clean. Lovely nose of passion fruit, pineapple and pink grapefruit. Good acidity, light-bodied, nice and fruity with a citrus zing and a delectable minerality in the aftertaste. This is a Sauvignon Blanc that can be enjoyed on its own but will also combine well with a range of seafood or salad.
Casa Marín Gewürztraminer 2013
A touch of petillance, this is a fresh, zippy and aromatic wine, very nice, with the acidity and sweetness very much in harmony. Great with Asian food.
Casa Marín Pinot Noir 2010
Medium intensity ruby. The nose opened with those oaky notes of coffee and leather and progressed to farmyard odours but the fruit aromas didn’t come through while we were there – I think it just needed more time. Very pleasant in the mouth with light tannins, quite fruity.
Out of interest, I am including a tasting note for a Casa Marín wine I enjoyed a few months ago.
Casa Marín Pinot Noir 2009
Liquid velvet. Shiny ruby in colour. An intriguing nose of black cherries, cedar and cinnamon and a meaty component with just a touch of farmyard. Very well rounded and velvety in the mouth with high acidity and medium tannins. High alcohol. Long in the finish.
