California : Central Coast : Monterey County
MEDIUM-BODIED, CRISP, BRIGHT, TROPICAL FRUITS, MINERAL, NO OAK
‘La Marea’ is the pet project of winemaker Ian Brand (of I. Brand), and shines a light on the terroir of the Monterey Bay area of California with the help of exclusively Spanish varietals. This offering is crisp, mineral driven, and packed with acidity. Fresh tropical fruits and saline show on the nose and are enhanced on the palate.

Uncommon bouyancy, tension, and nuance for an entry level cuvee. Sense of richness and purity to its white peach and grapefruit. Notes of almond and pistachio cream with chalky minerality. Incredible brightness. Fresh edge of pith.
