2021 Tutto Bianco d'Soumah

$28.00

Crisp and refreshing, this dry white follows the Italian tradition of blending all varieties from the vineyard into one multifaceted and complete wine. As the acronym on the front label suggests, this is a blend of our Savagnin, Chardonnay, Viognier and Pinot Grigio. We blend these in varying quantities, ensuring the wine is the complete package of fruit and balanced acidity. It is a wine from our hills and speaks of the land on which it is grown.

Spring started dry and cold with rains coming late. The four weeks from late-Nov to mid-Dec witnessed 7-inches of rain. A godsend in hindsight as we experienced the driest summer on record with less than 2-inches from late-Dec through Feb. This parching added to the heat with the summer being 2.5 degrees hotter than normal. Picking times were early and wines will be full fruited with soft tannin structure.

Made from a blend of Savagnin, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Viognier from our Hexham Vineyard.

[2017 Vintage] – 4.5 stars by Jane Thompson Herald Sun

“Light straw colour. The bouquet is fresh and young and scented by floral, spicy, lychee and talc or powder-puff aromas, with a subtle but attractive toasted-cashew high-note and some creamy yeastiness. A hint of chardonnay-like toasted hazelnut. The palate is crisp and refreshing, with good intensity of fruity middle-palate and a conclusive dryness, thanks to slight tannin grip and balanced, refreshing acidity. It carries long. 92 Points.”
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, December 2021 [2021 Vintage]

“Sunday picnics, crowd-pleasing deluxe, there is so much to keep you engaged with this easy-going wine. A blend of Savagnin, Chardonnay, Viognier and Pinot Grigio, it’s softly textured, it has touches of wispy spice, handfuls of white stone fruit and cleansing acidity. A terrific wine to sip in the sun or to enjoy with a light meal, summertime looks delicious with wines like this in the glass. Drink now. 91 Points.”
Qwine, December 2021 [2021 Vintage]

“This is a quintessential summer wine from a fast-rising producer in the Yarra Valley in Victoria. It is a field blend of four grape varieties; savagnin, chardonnay, viognier, and pinot grigio, that offers a perfect pairing with a seafood platter or some fish and chips. The fruit-driven palate is full of energy, and this would be an excellent choice well chilled on a warm summer day.”

“All things white, this is a blend of savagnin, chardonnay, viognier and pinot grigio. This has a zesty lemon, apple and melon nose with a gently floral edge. The palate is crisp elegant and focused with bright apples a highlight. 90 Points.”

“Yarra Valley blend of Savagnin, Chardonnay, Viognier and Pinot Grigio. We get around to most of the Soumah wines each year but we haven’t looked at the Tutto Bianco since the 2016 it seems, which surprises me.

It’s straight and direct. Not exactly lean, but in that vicinity. Lemon, apple, sweet herb and florals. It’s racy with acidity but there’s the merest whisper of texture too. With seafood this would sing. Again this isn’t salty but there’s that suggestion of brine. It’s good. 91 Points.”
Campbell Mattinson, The WineFront, November 2021 [2021 Vintage]

“A fascinating blend, interesting, complex aromas with a hint of florals and dried herbs. Rich, round but crisp palate with lashings of yummy complicated flavours and a divine, lingering finish. A REAL CLASS ACT!!”
