Ovum Wines ‘Big Salt’

Ovum Wines ‘Big Salt’ – a cooling zephyr on a sticky summer evening, one which could be imagined to traverse promenades all over the globe. Listen- a symphony of crickets lullabying a nomadic surfer into a gentle slumber. Close your eyes and taste. Frothing waves of white peach, honeysuckle and tropical fruit turning to curling riptides of saline minerality. A sand-swept bottle of hazy feverdreams that cleanses one’s palette and clears one’s mind. This is a liquified imaginarium- suddenly, one is floating through Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden, breathing deep the fresh floral aromas. A wine that is sure to incite excitable conversation and restore light-hearted laughter.

30 year-old, dry- farmed vines provide the source for Ovum Wines ‘Big Salt’ – a co-fermentation of Riesling, Muscat and Gewurtzraminer. John House and Ksenija Kostic allow fermentation to occur spontaneously and subsequently linger for months in used oak barrels. Offering their wines to Gaia, Goddess Mother of the Earth, their cuveés are truly representative of each vintage and henceforth, incredibly honest. ‘Ovum’ refers both to the natural life-cycle of a wine and the concrete ‘au courant’ that the winery utilises. This is an egg-shaped foudre which offers a particular convection, allowing the lees to stir constantly and of their own volition. This is a raw, unveiled tour of Oregon terroir and a true reflection of the climate here, at the dais of which House and Kostic curtsey.

Ovum Wines ‘Big Salt’ – an energising blast of chalky sea-breezes. Moreover, a euphoric and authentic expression of this region’s viticultural prowess. A supremely sanguine sipper, brimming with punchy aromatics that is as versatile as it is layered. To be enjoyed under the setting sun, surrounded by good friends and better conversation.
