About Margins Muscat Blanc
Margins Muscat Blanc is an organic, dry white wine. Half of the grapes in the final blend were destemmed and skin-fermented for two days with one
punch down per day. The other half of the grapes were whole-cluster pressed the day of picking. The two blends were aged separately in neutral oak for 5.5 months and blended before bottling. No fining, no filtration, and no other modifications or additions except 20 ppm of sulfur dioxide
the week before bottling. Grapefruit, ripe peach, rosewater, and chamomile notes. Another beauty from Megan Bell.
About Margins Wines
Margins produces low-intervention wines using grapes from underrepresented regions, vineyards, and varietals. We are part of the growing movement in California to make wines from vineyards farmed organically or in organic conversion using minimal additives during the winemaking process, thereby showcasing the vineyards the grapes came from.
Much like people living on the ‘margins of society,’ vineyards can be outcasts too. Most consumers of wine are only familiar with a handful of grape-growing regions and types of wine. Margins draw attention to vineyards and varietals throughout northern and central California that find themselves on the margins without the recognition they deserve.
