07 Feb Upper Ngumby New Release Wines, Out Now!
2023 Upper Ngumby New Release Wines
WOW! We cannot believe that we are already a month into 2024! We are celebrating with our Upper Ngumby New Release Wines!
We treasure the Upper Ngumby vineyard in which we grow Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It follows the Yarra river to the west of Yarra Glen and sits at just under 100 meters above sea level. We find the vines benefiting from the imposing Christmas Hills rising to the west which we believe allows these wines to show their great minerality.
After kicking off harvest 2023 two weeks later than the average, due to a very wet winter and spring, we were pleased to find that our fruit retained it’s natural acidity well and were left with intense but with a lighter weighted wines. Here we present our 2023 Single Vineyard Upper Ngumby Chardonnay and 2023 Single Vineyard Upper Ngumby Pinot Noir.
We are fast approaching our busiest season here at our Hexham Vineyard with harvest just around the corner. Our Viticulturalist Lucas reports our grapes are developing beautifully and he is busy monitoring the fruit for sugar and flavour levels. We are scheduled to begin harvesting our Pinot Grigio in two weeks time!
Be sure to follow us on social as we post regular updates about our progress this season!
WHATS ON AT SOUMAH THIS YEAR
We have been busy organising the year ahead and have some amazing events planned.
Our first epic event for the year will be a wine masterclass and launch of another exciting wine, scheduled for the last Sunday in February, more details to come!
In the mean time, make sure to visit us for wine tastings in our cellar door and delicious Italian meals in Ai Fiori Trattoria.
Lastly, don’t forget about our newly built Villette which are situated on our Hexham Vineyard featuring stunning panoramic views. What better way to enjoy a weekend exploring the Yarra Valley than staying right here amongst the vines!
