97+ Points - Stuart McCloskey “A thoroughly intriguing bouquet providing a striking mix from rich, deep fruit, to a cupboard full of spice and cool climate game notes. That’s the simplistic take. Now, for the full edition. Lead pencil, fresh, French oak, violet pastille, blueberry, blackberry, damsons and juniper are tinged with a smokiness – spiced fruitcake, milky cardamom, clove and cinnamon, which roll into black olive tapenade and liquorice. Hugely complex and evolves wonderfully in the glass. The palate is harmonious – the fruit glides effortlessly. There’s a sense of weightlessness – incredibly suave and sophisticated. A wonderful side to Aussie Syrah. The fruit is cooling but ripe and brooding, which is part of the wine’s charm. Pastille violet with a spiced fruitcake thrust. The tannins are woven like silk, freshness is evident. Beautifully elegant without the slightest sign of being mean… All the elements fall magically into place. Glorious – truly so. Drink now to 2030. Decant for a few hours. Served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware.”
Soumah Equilibrio Syrah 2018 - In Bond
Yarra Valley, Australia
We find this hidden gem located down a country lane, in the dress circle of the Warramate foothills of Gruyere.
It is from here that Soumah set out to make wine with the charm of northern Italy but the provenance of the majestic Yarra Valley.
Unravelling the story behind the exotically named Soumah, it is in fact an abbreviation of South of Maroondah, hinting at its location in the heart of Yarra Valley. Their wines however are far from exotic and instead they brim with the cool climate character and provenance of the majestic Yarra Valley. The perfect state of balance, calmness and composure of Soumah wines are expressed across the range, with the flagship wines receiving the graceful name ‘Equilibrio’.
The global press wax lyrical with strings of medals including the Decanter Gold winning Equilibrio Chardonnay and Decanter Platinum Equilibrio Pinot Noir.
"If I had to provide a brief statement to describe their wines – I would state, they are truly splendid and offer compelling drinking without the need to stress one’s wallet. From bottom to top, I believe these to be perfectly tuned with a satisfaction level of 100/100. They are not ‘pretenders’ and overdeliver with pure energy. The winemaking is skilful and the fruit, pure and natural. All in all, Soumah offer great drinking at affordable prices." - Stuart McCloskey
