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."
This is Pinot Gris turbocharged! Whole bunches are sealed into a tank for 14 days for carbonic maceration, before being pressed to wild ferment on full solids, then into barrel and lees-stirred for a further four months!
Deep colour, intoxicating perfume, voluptuous texture, this wine is a wildly delicious ride!
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 there's great fun to be had across the Somos range.
