Soumah Viognier 2013 (Yarra Valley, Vic)
14.1%, Screwcap, $26
While I still can’t drink (at least until next week), I can still stare longingly at a glass of wine after tasting. I didn’t stare too long at this Soumah, but if I was a Viognier-fancier (which I’m not. It’s a weed), then this would be worth a go.
According to the notes it’s a ‘peaches and cream’ Viognier, produced with the inclusion of HTK clone planted at 9000 vines per hectare.
A clever Viognier, that quite successfully ties in pine-lime fruit with just enough creamy richness to carry things along, this is recommendable at the very least.
Tasted: July 2014
Score: 17/20, 90/100
Would I buy it? Not quite. I’d probably enjoy the glass though.
