Winemaker / Tasting Notes

The heart of Sam Smith’s passion project VHS is the Japanese idea of TAKUMI(匠), focused around perfecting every part of a given process and becoming a master over time. This year’s release is a reflection of his journey.

Eighteen Views of Kuitpo is a rich and powerful orange wine that showcases the fruit in its purest form and that can stand with the greatest wines the world has to offer. Gewurztraminer (organic),

Ferment #1: 100% whole berry destemmed with 2 weeks pigeage. Followed by 6 months on skins.

Ferment #2: 80% whole cluster over 20% carbonic. 4 weeks on skins post carbonic.

Ferment #3: 100% whole berry destemmed with 3 weeks pigeage. Followed by 8 months on skins.

The free run fractions are racked to stainless before racking to a single new Francois Freres Puncheon.

Followed by 13 months elevage on full solids. Followed by 10 months bottle maturation.

Complex, skillfull and most of all utterly delicious, this is what skin contact aspires to be.
