Welcome to our 2021 Tomir. Same beauty as before, but with some more tropical flower power this year! The perfect wine for Asian food!
On August 11th we harvested 5599 kilos of gorgeous fresh and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc that was processed the following morning after chilling over night as always. Then pressed and set to ferment.
About a week later on the 16th, we harvested 7204 kilos of lush and tropical Viognier. After processing, a total of 6380 liters was also set to ferment.
After fermentation and racking we blended some, but not all, of the 2 together in a 42% / 58% proportion of Sauvignon Blanc & Viognier respectively. This means that Tomir 2021 has a higher proportion of Viognier than in 2020.
How to best enjoy 2021 Tomir
Tasting note written by Marie on April 17th 2022
Super expressive and fruity nose with lots of tropical fruits like mango, papaya and litchi. Opens up with ripe aromatic red apple and blood orange. This is really like a tropical punch in the best possible way!
It is also juicy and packed with fruit on the palate. Same tropical style, but lifted up by a ripe, but refreshing acidity that breathes life into the wine.
A riper and more bold Tomir with a higher proportion of Viognier than in former vintages giving it more weight, volume and backbone.
What to serve with Tomir
This would pair brilliantly with an asian style salad with big prawns. Think, crisp green leaves, avocado, sugar-snaps, coriander, mango and a lime, ginger, sesame, chili dressing. Heaven!
How and when to enjoy Tomir
Serve Tomir very cold to keep the muscle and power at bay... Enjoy this summer with some boldly flavoured dishes and let it transport you to a tropical island...
