2016 Soumah Single Vineyard Pinot Noir Upper Ngumby


Pinot Noir is a very selective grape. It does not like the heat but likes the sun. It likes to be on well drained soils, so not good on flat landscapes. It likes warm days but more important, cooler nights. It is so demanding that only a few Australian regions can aspire to produce 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 selecting small patches of older wines from various Single Vineyard sites from across the Valley.

Varietals: Pinot Noir

Clones:  MV6, 115

Harvest: 16 February, 2016

Baume at Harvest: 12.3

pH at Harvest: 3.45

TA at Harvest: 7.0

The Upper Nygumby vineyard is near Yarra Glen. These older MV6 vines coupled with the 115 clone have produced a wine of elegant weight and subtle florals. The savoury cherries and wild herbs blend well and are supported by fine oak and acid length.
