Dry yet textural, it has a lovely balance of density and acidity that offers amazing drinkability.
About The Wine
'Seven Eves' is a new project from the loveable Somos chaps of McLaren Vale. The idea being best described by the boys:
"These wines are named after our philosophy when making them, they are designed to be varietal and focused, yet they are also quite juicy, fragrant, and easy to drink. Perfect for any night of the week, hence Seven Eves."
They've kicked off with a pair of delicious Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris, that deliver great bang for buck. This is the more 'classic' style, with mostly stainless steel fermentation resulting in a fresh-fruited style, with a but of older oak and lees stirring for texture.
Pinot Gris 101.
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.
