Sommos Colección Sauvignon Blanc
SOMMOS COLECCIÓN SAUVIGNON BLANC, a fresh, modern, New World wine.
Dry-farmed trellises trained using the unilateral cordon de royat method planted at 3 × 0.8 metres (3,700 vines/hectare). Vegetation arranged on a two-wired canopy at 1.3 metres high. Meticulous manual pruning and leaf removal during May and June. Slope oriented north-south for maximised exposure to sunlight.
Deep, well-drained rocky soils on a steep incline (15%). Loamy soil with high-quality alluvial clay deposits and moderate organic content. The abundance of pebbles and gravel additionally cushions the soil and prevents decreases in humidity due to daytime evaporation, keeping the wine fresh and endowing it with naturally balanced acidity. Altitude: 1,000 metres above sea level.
