Monday, 7:00 p.m, Marina Real de Valencia. The Mediterranean soundtrack, the aroma breeze. Barrel, glasses, specialized press, illusion, many novelties and … wine ;). After a lot of work, both in design and preparation, yesterday we presented the new Mariluna, which bets on national varieties, Tempranillo and Bobal in red, and Verdejo and Macabeo in white. The evolution of Mariluna inside and out is a commitment of our winery to bring quality wine to the youngest. Hence, the fresh image and a more minimalist graphic in its labeling. All this, without renouncing our philosophy. The result? An organic wine of Mediterranean character in which is the imprint of Sierra Norte: great freshness and aromatic intensity.
Mariluna has a version in red and another in white, and in the development of both has opted for the most internationally recognized spanish varieties, which are accompanied by Mediterranean native varieties. Another new feature is that it has an organic wine certification.
In Mariluna red, the protagonist takes the Tempranillo (85%) that wine together with Bobal. The grapes come from old vineyards over 40 years old. In its preparation, the ‘delestage’ technique is used, which consists of extracting the entire must from the tank in its maceration phase and re-incorporating it at once to cause the liquid to break the so-called hat, formed by the skins, to obtain more color and structure. This wine rests for six months in French and American oak barrels. In the tasting we find red fruit, cocoa, toasted notes and sweet spices. It is a wine with a lot of fruit, volume on the palate and tasty.
In the case of Mariluna white, the predominant variety is Verdejo (85%), which is accompanied by Macabeo. For its preparation, only the must flower, which is obtained from a very light pressing of the grape, is used. As a differential sign of other whites, this wine has two months of aging on its fine lees, with a weekly stirring that increases its volume and complexity in the mouth. The result is a very aromatic wine, with notes of white flower, citrus and apricot. Friendly in the tasting, with good acidity, complex and unctuous. And that by the way has already won his first medal, the bronze in the wine awards of the Comunitat Valenciana Proava.
This new personality of the wine is accompanied by a new image, a label with a minimalist representation of the bottom of the sea, appealing to the name of the wine and also to its Mediterranean character.
The specialized press already knows Mariluna, now you only lack. You have a golden opportunity to try it and get some bottle at our stand at the Mostra de Vins i Aliments, which takes place in Valencia from 5 to 9 April.
