2019 Somos Biodynamically Farmed Vermentino
Blend: 100% Vermentino
Region: McLaren Vale
- Single Vineyard - Hiltop
- Certified Biodynamic fruit grown by Paxton.
Style: Retaining all the classic sea-spray aromatics of this Sardinian variety, we picked it early enough to keep a great line of acid, but building on barrel fermentation and ageing on lees to add complexity and enhance the textural nature of the variety. We have created a complex and textured little number that has tons of layers.
2019 was a warm vintage, and yields were down across South Australia due to some freak wind events, and a heat wave in January. This ensured a quite compressed vintage, with most fruit coming in a 4 week period across March.
Fruit was hand-picked and was gently basket pressed straight into old French barriques, and it fermented wild. 10% was destemmed and left on skins, it fully fermented on skins and was pressed after 10 days. We let the wine age on gross lees for 9 months to develop mineral sur-lie aromatics. It was kept in bottle for 3 months before release.
