Soumah Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
Love the ‘duck-egg’ blue Soumah labels. Great colour and full of information. This single vineyard Pinot, for instance has a pH (3.60) and TA (6.61). Small details, but I love knowing them.
Curious wine this though. Odd. Ruby red coloured, the ripe, glacé fruit nose is such a counter to the low alcohol. Lots of red fruit. Yet the palate is hard and dusty – it tastes flat and lacks fruit generosity, the finish tight and awkward.
I do wonder whether this was a bad bottle, but it didn’t necessarily look faulty – too aromatic for that. Drink: 2015-2020. 16/20, 87/100
Details: 12.6%, Screwcap, $33, Sample
Would I buy it? No.
