Saroto 2020 Tinto

A juicy blend of red and white spanish grapes
$34.00
- small | $65.00- Large
Bright Fruits, Fresh, Mineral, Refined Texture, Easy Drinking. Saroto Tinto is made from a small, old, field-blend parcel comprised of old-fashioned red and white Douro varieties. The resultant wine is full of wild forest fruit, lots of berries with a kick of natural sourness. Plenty of fresh acidity adds juiciness and balances the rustic, grippy tannins, making for quite a light red. Earthy minerality adds extra complexity and the finish is long and moreish. The significance of the lizard on the label is just as beautiful as the wine inside the bottle. According to the winemaker, "the name Saroto is given to an animal with its tail cut. The lizard has the ability to re-grow it. The metaphor is that we have cut with herbicides and pesticides in our vineyards and a new cycle is starting. It is also valid for the fact that we are regrowing the region and its tradition."

Red Blend

In the US, a red blend is essentially any domestic wine that's not made from a specific grape variety. Winemakers blend grapes because it allows them to reach desired flavor profiles that a single grape variety could not achieve on their own. Common red blends in the US often feature Cabernet, merlot and either cabernet franc or petite verdot. However there are many other common red blends including grenache, syrah and mourvedre often referred to as a GSM blend. In France, these blends would most commonly be named for the reason from whence they hail. For example, the Bordeaux blend or Rhone blend respectively.
