NV Brachetto Frizzante d'Soumah


Brachetto is a north eastern Italian grape variety that has been a favourite since the time of Romans. Only a few vineyards in Australia grow the variety that is like liquid Turkish delight. The sweet flavour of rose water and strawberries fills your senses yet finishing clean and fresh. Soft bubbles, a light sweetness and lower alcohol make this wine the perfect start or finish to any meal.

This Frizzante wine, being slightly sweet and tasting like rose water and strawberries, is a great companion with desserts, including hazelnut chocolate tart or simple fresh berries and cream. At SOUMAH trattoria, we make a special Brachetto sorbet and even fashion a fresh and zesty cocktail we call Blitz, a mix of Brachetto with Aperol over ice with fresh mint.

The SOUMAH precinct of Victoria’s Yarra Valley is home to many of Australia’s most premium wines. Our Dress Circle location is situated in the Warramate foothills (South of Maroondah — SOUMAH (so-ma)), overlooking the valley floor below. Fruit from select Yarra Valley vineyards are fashioned into elegant styled wines for our d’Soumah label, rich in flavour, length and savoury complexity.

“Normally these kinds of wines seem an anomaly in wine recommendations but this wine is so well put together, and, guilty as charged, I loved drinking it. So fresh, gently sweet, those pretty and perky little bubbles charging around, and enough crunchy acidity to ensure the wine feels vibrant and so very cleansing. Post meals, this is unreal. A win in the sweet fizzy wine landscape. 92 Points.”

“It’s very pretty in the glass: a youthful, medium to full-pink with a purple tint and a vigorous froth of bubbles. The bouquet is fresh, intense and strongly muscat-scented, while the palate backs up nicely with well-measured sweetness and a lovely grapy fruitiness that lingers well. It’s an exemplar for the style. 90 Points.”
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, March 2021 [2020 Vintage]
“Sweet ripe fruit on the nose. Cherries, strawberries, raspberries you get it. Not overdone though even though I mentioned ripe. The gently sparkling Frizzante nature of the wine coupled with the natural acidity tempers any overt sweetness and imparts a delicacy and finesse to the palate. Note, whilst this is not strictly a dessert wine, more so an aperitif, it went down a treat with homemade trifle. Very nice easy Summer drinking. Cheers to the New Year!”
Paul Ippolito, January 2021 [2020 Vintage]
“Made from the northern Italian variety brachetto, which is rare in Australia, this shows musk and rose water on the nose and lightly sparkling palate with some natural sweetness and a crisp finish. It’s almost like drinking liquid Turkish delight. It’s a great match for fruit pastries or a fresh fruit pavlova. 91 Points.”
Mike Frost, January 2021 [2020 Vintage]
“In the glass this dessert wine is a pinky peach colour with juicy notes of fresh strawberries, pears and citrus on the nose. The palate follows suit in terms of flavours. It’s got fruit sweetness but this is balanced by acidity which makes it very yummy and not sickly sweet as some might worry about being a dessert wine. Very enjoyable!”

“The back label says ‘liquid Turkish delight’ and that just about sums it up. Something a little different to take the sting out of a sweltering day perhaps? Light on the fizz and low on the alcohol too (11%), rose water and ripe strawberries lead the way with fairy floss hot on their tail. Not overly sweet, it is quite a cleansing wine and ideal for a pre-dinner aperitif or match it with some desserts. I had a glass with Thai and it did the job. For maximum effect, partially freeze three-quarters of a bottle, shake it up and you have an instant slushie. Hello pool time! Drink now.”

“The combination of obvious sweetness and light, zippy, fresh-faced fruit flavour makes for a pretty winning combination. It has a good feel to it too; mouthfeel. Cherries, strawberries and citrus. It’s light, fragrant, gently sweet and delicious.”
The Winefront, December 2020 [2020 Vintage]
“Gently sparkling and made in a sweet raspberried style though it has enough freshness and zip for it to work (just) as a table wine. There are far worse ways to spend your time.”
Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2020 [2019 Vintage]
“Sweet canned peach nose with richly flavoured palate and balanced sweetness. 3 Stars.”
Winestate Magazine, Aug/Sept 2020 [2019 Vintage]
“Sweet! Lurid garnet colour. Slippery texture, light bubbles, vivacious and lively style. Clean and fresh in its way. Does the job really well. 90 Points.”
