Soumah Skye Blox Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2014
The entry point Chardonnay in the Soumah range.
Green straw coloured; the white peach and nectarine nose suggests largely old oak, save for a little yeasty creamy edges. A pineapple ripe fruit character here distracts, a nod to a ripe vintage, the finish slightly sweet and sour. Nice gentle fruit though, and certainly that nectarine juiciness and soft finish have appeal.
Not bad. Slightly rough around the edges, but offers character at least. Drink: 2015-2018. 16.5/20, 88/100
Details: 13%, Screwcap, $21, Sample
