About The Wine
The Blanquito is a white sibling of the smashable Somos red blend, Tintito.
This unusual blend of Arneis, Cortese, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills is light and crunchy and devastatingly easy to drink.
Crisp-edge, a touch of 'minerality' through the mouth, fruit forward and ready to rip.
If you're after an easily enjoyable white which will go perfectly with seafood but are exploring outside the Riesling/Semillon etc prism, this is a geat option.
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.
