Profile: Casa Marin
Casa Marin is a pioneering, extreme Chilean wine producer in many regards.
It’s run by the indefatigable Mariluz Marin and specialises in intense, elegant wines from prime coastal territory – primarily Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir but also now Syrah, Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Sauvignon Gris, among others.
I’ve long been a fan of the wines and recently wrote a profile of them in the June edition of Decanter magazine, which you can read by clicking on the following link (by kind permission of Decanter/IPC Media): Peter Richards MW Casa Marin profile in Decanter June 2012
The article comes illustrated with some excellent photographs by English-born, Chilean-based Matt Wilson (married to Lapostolle winemaker Andrea Leon).
I was chuffed to find an excuse to use a bit of Vicente Huidobro’s poetry in the article, which will work as a serviceable sign-off here:
Now and then
Drop on life.
