Ver Sacrum GSM Red Blend


Eduardo Soler started Ver Sacrum in 2012 after spending some time in the Gredos, in Madrid, and falling in love with the mountain Garnacha. An avid mountaineer who has had a career managing and running ski resorts in Argentina, he decided to start making wines, all from Rhone varietals. His idea is to make fresh ones, with lower alcohol and lighter skin contact, not exactly what Argentina has been known for. His wines ferment from native yeasts and there are no corrections, no filtration, or pump overs. The winery currently sources from two different vineyards in Barrancas (Maipu) and Los Chacayes (Uco Valley) where they have planted Grenache, Monastrell, Carignan, Roussane, Marsanne, Mencia, Syrah, Teroldego, and Nebbiolo. This wine is a field blend of 70% Grenache Noir, 15% Monastrell, and 15% Syrah all co-fermented. The nose is earthy and muddled with hints of blackberry and cherry luden with under notes of forest floor, fungi, tea leaf, thyme, and candied leather. The palate is juicy and lush with black fruits, currant, and fine grained tannins that lead to a light finish of clove and cinammon. Soil Type: Calcareous river stones
