Soumah Hexham Chardonnay 2023


More concentrated depth highlights this Soumah Hexham Chardonnay compared to its Upper Ngumby sibling. Comparing the two side by side is a fabulous exercise but the strength of the Hexham is its food partnering appeal given its complexity. 

Planted in 2006, three clones (95, 76, Mendosa) are grown on the Hexham site that can be found beside the Soumah cellar door. The fruit was wild yeast fermented in French oak (20% new) for eight months.

White fleshed stonefruit and a nutty drive, the mid-palate is saturated with interest and weight. Lemon zest and brioche muse with New York cheesecake creaminess and ginger nut biscuits. More suited to food given its presence in the mouth, a lick of lemon curd bundled up by fine spices on exit is a neat parting gift. Find that roast chook or bucket of KFC.

Drink to eight years.
