Pure. Biodynamic. Petit Verdot
Type: Biodynamic Red Wine
Winery: Bodega Samsara Wines
Region: D.O Sierra de Malaga, Serranía de Ronda
Variety: 100% Petit Verdot
Total Production: 3000 bottles, including 1000 allocated for
Elaboration: Wine both grown and made biodynamically. 10
months of ageing in barrels of French and Hungarian oak. It
is a single vineyard wine, so it comes from a specific (and
special) vineyard at the elevation of 800m above sea level.
The soil is clay, but it is only 50 cm deep with a massive
sandstone laying beneath. The plants, therefore, have to
break their stone with their roots to reach nutrients. This
gives Samsara wines the typical obvious mineral notes.
The harvest time is 20th-25th October. Temperatures in
Ronda are quite low by that time so the ripening of the grape
is rather slow similar to "slow cooking. The grapes are hand
picked at night time.
