Wine review – Soumah’s opulent chardonnay

Soumah Equilibrio Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2017 $80
Soumah’s first-release Equilibrio sits at the plush end of the chardonnay spectrum, offering no beg-pardons for hugely opulent fruit and assertive barrel-derived flavours. The price might appear steep, but Soumah provides pure, sensuous drinking pleasure way beyond the everyday. The maker says the wine’s blended from the best barrels of chardonnay made from the Mendosa clone, noted for its richness.
