James Halliday Wine Companion 2020

James Halliday Wine Companion 2020

The 2020 Halliday Wine Companion appeared on newsstands and in bookstores all over the country yesterday and it is safe to say, our Pinots are a favourite in these parts! In addition, we are proud to say we retained our 5-star Winery rating. This rating means we are “capable of producing wines of a very high quality, and did so this year… (and we) have at least two wines rated at 95 points or above.”

You will see our full awards list actually acknowledges three wines above 95 points. These are excellent results for our Soumah team. Congratulations to all involved!

2017 EQUILIBRIO PINOT NOIR, HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2020

“…It's lusciously juicy, with structure behind the delicious fruit flavours, the balance very good. An eye-popper.” (96 Points)
2016 THE BUTCHER, HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2020

“…Excellent colour; a very impressive wine, intense and complex, its foresty/savoury profile suggesting some whole bunches in the ferment.” (95 Points)
2017 HEXHAM PINOT NOIR, HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2020

“…It's a supremely elegant wine, with a full suite of red fruit/pomegranate flavours and silky tannins. Pure joy. It may be a while before we have another vintage as good as '17.” (95 Points)
