Somos means ‘we are’ in Spanish. Rather existentialist, though the wines that Ben and Mauricio craft are not inaccessibly esoteric, but rather wonderfully democratic, vibrant and, most certainly, fun. Minimal intervention, minimal volumes. Much of it sees export to South and Central America where your tanned, tangoing doppelganger enjoys them post-siesta. Be more like them: take the siesta and then party well into the evening with good friends, food and wine. Salud!
An orange wine from 100% Biodynamically farmed Verdelho, from a small vineyard in McLaren Flat. The resulting orange wine is vibrant orange in colour, unfined and unfiltered so the wine has an appealing cloudiness. Heaps of ginger spice, tangerine, orange peel, baked pears, and hints of toffee apple on the nose, with a compelling full palate, textural and soft with bright orange pith, mandarin crunch, and soft brioche and caramel notes.
