2017 Cabernet Sauvignon d’Soumah


An elegant Cabernet Sauvignon displaying prominent blackcurrant fruit flavours combined with black olive notes and hints of mint and cedar. These distinctive savoury characteristics lay the foundation for a stylish wine of smooth length due to the renown fine tannins of the Yarra Valley.
‘Drink now for its balance or cellar for its potential.’

The 2017 vintage began with a wetter than normal spring delivering a good water table for the season. The temperatures were cooler than the most recent years and closer to the long term average. This setup for a late harvest than we have been experiencing allowing the fruit to gently ripen in the summer breeze developing savoury complexity while retaining good natural acidity.

Our d’Soumah range of wines are made with fruit sourced from our own and other premium vineyards throughout the Yarra Valley to produce wines of distinct character and finesse that our region has become famous. Cabernet Sauvignon is a noble grape and was one of the first varieties to be grown in the Yarra Valley when it was re-established as a wine region in the 1960’s. Our d’Soumah range is built to deliver an exceptional price for value proposition and we believe this wine certainly delivers on that promise.

“Luncheon Claret style at a lunch-worthy price. Dark and proper varietal, complete with hints of capsicum. Mid weight palate is nicely varietal too, complete with sticky Cabernet tannins. A sweet middle lifts up the slightly sour fruit. Good genuine Yarra Cabernet.”
