Today, Jeremy tries two Nebbiolo from Soumah in the Yarra Valley, an up and coming maker of Nebbiolo.
Soumah Nebbiolo 2016:
Nose - earthy, floral, musky cherries, red berries, fresh and intense
Palate - long palate, LOVE IT!!. Even, textural and bright.
Soumah The Butcher 2018:
A blend of Syrah, Cabernet blend with a modern twist of Nebbiolo. Deeper in colour.
Nose - bright, juicy, slightly minty, chocolatey oak. Very floral and lots happening.
Palate - juicy, medium bodied, vivacious palate. Mouth filling with fine dusty tannins. Hint of cola, dried herbs and citrus at the end that could be Nebbiolo full stop.
Both retail at $50 and Jeremy would score both as a silver medal, around 90-91 out of 100.
Which would he choose - it depends. If you want something European then the Nebbiolo but if you are after something Australian with an Italian twist then The Butcher.
