DESCRIPTION

Sauvignon Gris, or in French known as Fié, is a rare variety which was largely abandoned after the phylloxera epidemic due to its remarkably low yields. Today the variety can still be found in some parts of the Loire and Bordeaux, but it is often blended with Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon. This pink variety has a thick skin which produces more full-bodied and aromatic wines than Sauvignon Blanc. Maria Luz Marín fell in love with this variety when she tried it in France, and ever since the first harvest in 2003, Casa Marín’s Sauvignon Gris is the hidden treasure of the portfolio.  

It is one of those wines with a WOW EFFECT: once you taste it, it will mark you forever. About 50 percent is fermented with natural yeast in used French oak barrels of 500 liters, where it stays for another 7 months. The other half of the wine is fermented in stainless steel. The wine is favorite among many chefs and sommeliers around the world and is listed in the world’s best restaurants.
