Description | Details | Rating

Samas is named after the Punic God of the Sun. Vermentino and Chardonnay grapes grown in sandy soil are hand harvested at dawn to maintain characteristic varietal notes and freshness. Cryomaceration techniques prevent oxidation, resulting in a bright, vibrant wine. With prolonged fermentation using selected yeasts at controlled temperatures (60° Fahrenheit), the wine remains on the less for approximately 40 days. Vinified separately, the varieties rest in small concrete vats for 3 months once blended. To retain maximum character and freshness, Samas is neither filtered nor clarified.

Wine Spectator
"A creamy white, with hints of fleur de sel and jasmine playing off flavors of yellow melon, pink grapefruit sorbet and stone. Offers a fresh, minerally finish. Vermentino with Chardonnay."
