The 2018 Samas is a lovely golden, straw-yellow color that scintillates in the glass as light passes through it. There is a distinguished Mediterranean aroma in the nose, like you’re standing on one of Sardegna’s high hilltops and looking out over the sea. The bouquet pops with tropical and citrus notes revealing a light freshness that explodes on the palate as you take your first sip. Balanced and clean with fresh lemons, tangerines and orange, there is a bit of salinity that grabs your attention. It all then vanishes with a clean finish. Wow. An extra note on the wine making process: The wine is pressed at an average temperature of 60°F and kept cool while refining. Open vats for the vinification process allow for proper yeast control and while most whites ferment for a week or two at most, this little wine ferments for 40 days…that’s crazy! After pressing and fermenting, the two wines (Vermentino and Chardonnay) are then blended and allowed to rest in concrete for 3 months unfiltered and as naturally made as possible. This attention to detail is amazing for such an affordable wine!
