Soumah Hexham Single Vineyard Yarra Valley Viognier 2017
Lovely textured Yarra Valley Viognier with 94 Halliday points from an exciting 5 star estate
Enjoy a stunning pure Viognier (a white grape best known in France’s Rhône Valley) from winemaker Scott McCarthy. Born in Mildura, he’s worked at Yalumba, in Napa, the Loire Valley and Marlborough, and often seeks inspiration from Europe’s vineyards. The name Soumah is an abbreviation of South of Maroondah (Highway). “Aromas sit firmly in the stone fruit realm with apricot leading the way, and a touch of skins (sic) character providing a more savoury element. Displays the typically textured mouthfeel of the variety, the flavours ripe but not sweet, and a juicy, mouthwatering acidity running through the palate. A fresh, lightly astringent quality lingers pleasantly on the finish and aftertaste ... 94 points” (Halliday).
