Sommos Colección Gewürztraminer
SOMMOS Collection Gewürztraminer. This fresh varietal wine expresses the best of our terroir in mineral tones.
Single cordon trellis vineyard with drip irrigation. This vineyard’s soil limitations make it moderately vigorous and its 1.5 m canopy provides shade and protects grape clusters from direct sunlight.
Slightly sloping loamy texture and high silt content featuring salts and abundant gypsum.
THE WINEMAKING PROCESS
Night harvest. The gravity-based reductive winemaking process entails maceration for six hours in the pneumatic press followed by settling and fermentation in concrete tanks at temperatures between 14 and 16ºC.
The wine is aged for four months in a selection of new, lightly toasted French oak barrels.
Colour: Pale lemon with greenish hues.
Aroma: Floral notes predominate over a wide aromatic range with hints of citrus fruits as well as baking spices from barrel ageing.
Taste: Round and smooth with a lively, balanced structure. Very long and elegant aftertaste.
Served Temperature: 9º to 11º C.
