2014 Soumah 'Single Vineyard' Brachetto

Soumah are based in the Yarra Valley where they focus on Northern Italian style wines, alongside some of the Eastern French styles more common in this area. The Brachetto grape originates from Piedmont region of Northwest Italy and is commonly used to make a slightly sweet sparkling wine in the DOCG region of Brachetto D'aqui.

Here these grapes have been used to produce a sweet, still wine with great aromatic intensity. It opens up with distinct notes of strawberry and roses. The palate is less sweet than many other dessert wines (certainly less sweet than most botrytis wines or other stickies) and is nicely balanced with a touch of acidity. 

An all round interesting and enjoyable wine. Ideal for pairing with desserts, particularly fruit and/or not-too-sweet cakes.
