Samas is named after the Punic God of the Sun. Vermentino and Chardonnay grapes grown in a predominantly sandy soil are hand harvested at dawn to maintain characteristic varietal notes and freshness. Cryomaceration techniques prevent oxidation, resulting in a bright, vibrant wine. With prolonged fermentation using selected yeasts at controlled temperatures (60˚ Fahrenheit), the wine remains on the less for approximately 40 days. Vinified separately, the varieties are blended and then rest in small concrete vats for 3 months to complete the maturation and natural stabilization of Samas, which is neither filtered nor clarified.
Vivid yellow straw color with soft, green hints. This silky and well-balanced wine has notes of citrus and tropical fruits with Mediterranean herbs including sage, and a fresh minerality.
