About the Wine

This is a mystery red blend from Ben and Mauricio at Somos wines.

It's a compilation of predominantly red Rhone varieties with a few other bits and pieces thrown in for fun. The aim here was to create "A wine driven by primary berry fruit, savoury spice and acid line. Textural light red." and they've nailed the MO.

This is a top value little red and is squarely in no-brainer territory for those chasing a medium-bodied red that is loaded with charisma.

About Somos

The Somos wines are the product of two enthusiastic young winemakers - one Australian and one Mexican - looking to make interesting and contemporary wines from McLaren Vale. Benjamin Caldwell and Mauricio Ruiz Cantu are the creative duo behind this exciting project, with the wines exported back to South & Central America as well as sold through just a handful of outlets and venues locally in Australia.

The focus is on 'alternative' varieties from sustainably managed vineyards - their Aglianicos being of particular note. Their unique wines are made with a deft touch, the resulting styles perfumed and balanced, bursting with energy and personality. Just minuscule volumes produced, but great fun to be had across the Somos range.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Ripe strawberry, roses, bright but with a bit of funk. It's not crazy complex, some Grenache sweetness and super fine tannin shows itself. Touch of spice, some hints of brown herbs. Just a fun, light and airy drink. Tumblers and BBQs at the ready. - Different Drop Wine Team
