Tomir is finding it's perfect balance!
After last year's rather voluminous and very tropical edition of Tomir we really focused on returning to a more fresh and vibrant style this year which we reached with a perfect picking time and very precise proportion between Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.
As always the Sauvignon here provides nerve, freshness/acidity and cooler, greener fruit notes whereas the Viognier gives more tropical fruit, backbone and density to the wine.
As always handpicked, left to cool overnight before hand-sorting, destemming, pressing and set to settle in the tank to rack the juice off the coarser sediments. Once racked after 1-2 days of settling set to ferment. This year we decided to do a small experiment and do two different fermentation for our Sauvignon Blanc using 2 different types of yeast. This resulted in 2 highly different wines that complimented each other amazingly well when blended together now in spring after some 6 months of resting in the steel vats. They found balance in a, to us, perfect blend with an almost equal part of Viognier. Using two different fermentations of Sauvignon Blanc resulted in a more complex and harmonious Tomir that we are sure you'll enjoy a lot!
How to best enjoy 2022 Tomir
Tasting note written by Marie
What to serve with Tomir
Salmon carpaccio with cucumber and a caper, olive oil and lemon dressing, or if in an asian mood a salmon ceviche, but raw salmon it is!
When, where and with whom
This vintage of Tomir is a highly versatile wine and it's both the perfect "terrace wine" served nicely chilled in the sunshine on it's own or with some snacks. However; it also works really well with a wide range of lighter foods, but as mentioned above it works particularly well with raw salmon due to the high acidity of the wine. Most importantly; this is a dynamic happy wine made for joyful moments in spring and summer!
