2018 Pinot Noir d’Soumah

$28.00 $25.00

This wine was made from Pinot Noir fruit sourced from premium Yarra Valley vineyards: Hexham (our home vineyard) and Upper Ngumby (located just outside of Yarra Glen). Our Pinot Noir has an attractive garnet colour and delivers cherry and raspberry fruit profile along with savoury fleshiness.

The barrel aging develops the rich flavour and aroma of the wine. A good portion of new barrels (20% new oak) adding classic soft oak characters and improving overall integration.

Serving the wine cool (around 15 degrees) will enhance the flavour profile which suits pairing with Mediterranean dishes, chicken, duck and light meats.‘A savoury Pinot Noir with elegant red fruits and soft, composed length.’

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 set up 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.

Pinot Noir is the most famous red from the Yarra Valley and is one of the best regions in Australia for producing new age, linear fresh wines.

Our d’Soumah range is built to deliver an exceptional price for value proposition and we believe this wine certainly delivers on that promise.

“Stick your nose into a glass of this and inhale deeply – it’s gloriously pure and intense, like cherry and raspberry liqueur. Those aromas spill easily into the mouth as well, rising, fragrant with florals and seasoned by tantalizing spices. Soft in the drinking, juicy with swirling red berry/cherry flavours and the faintest sticky tannin palate coating. Very pretty drinking. Best with Chinese barbecued pork dishes.”
