2016 Soumah Single Vineyard Pinot Noir Hexham


Pinot Noir is a very selective grape. It does not like the heat but does like the sun. It likes to be on well drained soils so not good on flat landscapes. It likes warm days but more important, cold summer nights. It is so demanding that only a few Australian regions can aspire to produce a Pinot Noir of any pedigree. The Yarra Valley has attained that status over the decades and we have set out to support that reputation with our attention to detail and first-rate vineyard sites.

Varietals: Pinot Noir

Clones:  MV6, 777, Pommard (D4V2)

Harvest: 10 February, 2016

Baume at Harvest: 12.1

pH at Harvest: 3.4

TA at Harvest: 7.5

We set out to make a Pinot Noir with restraint. We want elegance over power and we want the fruit to be balanced with secondary developed flavours of earth and savoury spice. The cold soak, wild yeast ferment, and long secondary maturation in barriques all contributes to complexity.
