At Somerston we believe in sustainable farming and the intrinsic quality of our land. Our property’s magnificent valleys, steep hillsides and infinite vistas have inspired our wine and our purpose. Somerston is a place of natural splendor that must be seen to be believed.
We invite you to come see for yourself.
The 2009 Somerston Estate Fortified Red Wine is our first release of this wine and it tastes like a vintage Port! The aromas are elevated and full of bright red fruit with rich dark color. The palate is full of sweet cherries and plums, and balanced with sweetness and acidity.
The 2010 Somerston Estate Sauvignon Blanc is our third release of this wine. Yields of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Musque were perfect, resultling in a wine that displays all the characteristics that we expect from this great vineyard site. The mineral nose shows bright tropical notes of mango, grapefruit and citrus, while on the palate, delicious fruit flavors of poached pear, vanillin and grilled citrus fruit are highlighted by oak texture and a long, persistent finish.
The 2010 Somerston Stornoway is our second release, showing the potential of our amazing estate. This right bank inspired wine jumps out of the glass with expressive aromatics of blueberry, espresso, and oak spice. The wine is rich and concentrated, yet balanced and elegant. The palate is focused with dark red fruits, spice and blueberry. The balanced acid profile builds up to a lingering and persitent finish. The wine wiill age and develop for the next 20 years.
