Whether an experienced connoisseur or starting with the basics, it’s no doubt that the world travels for wine.
Soumah of Yarra Valley makes the cut as one of the top boutique wineries to visit in Victoria’s wine region.
Located down a country lane in the Warramate foothills and surrounded by other wineries of its calibre, the winery itself boasts picturesque views of the vines and mountains from the moment you arrive.
The restaurant on sites offers Northern Italian Cuisine to compliment a series of wines inspired by the elegance and honesty of Northern Italian wines. Soumah has a strong focus on styles from Northern Italy including a 2015 Pinot Grigio.
The cool climate of the Yarra Valley allows Soumah to produce white grapes with a dusty grey colour, giving the gently-picked fruit zesty characters that can be found in some of the best wines of Northern Italy.
Many wine connoisseurs would describe a Pinot Grigio as being perfect for those starting their interest in wine due to its crisp and light-bodied characters. However Soumah’s 2015 vintage is mature for its variety and for the wineries age with a medium body delivering honey dew, fig and pear flavours. This clone from the North Eastern Friuli region in Italy was harvested in February 2015 and can be enjoyed right away.
While in the Yarra Valley, it is worth sampling Soumah’s 2015 Pinot Noir and 2013 and 2015 Chardonnay’s as the two varieties are well-known in this particular wine region. Soumah delivers on these Eastern French inspired single vineyard varieties, with their reputation growing rapidly.
The 2013 Single Vineyard Chardonnay is a stand out drop with a rich and creamy finish, recommended for any dinner party.
Wine connoisseurs are able to find vintages to store through the decades including the 2014 Syrah and 2015 Cabernet d’ Soumah.
With correct storage, and endurance of temptation, the 2015 Wild Savagnin will continue to improve over the next 15 years, improving in acidity and notes of spicy honey.
