Soumah of Yarra Valley, is owned by brothers Brett and Greg Butcher. Their 50 acre site, in a dress circle location on the northern flanks of the Coldstream Hills, was established in 1997. They launched the Soumah brand in 2010 after a number of years of redeveloping the vineyard and judiciously matching clones to soil types and the various aspects of Soumah’s different vineyard blocks.
Soumah’s first release was its single vineyard Savarro made from 100% Savagnin, which has Northern Italian origins and received wide critical acclaim. Their offering now includes the proven high achievers of the Valley — Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but Brett and Greg believe the premium site is also perfectly suited to Shiraz and Northern Italian varieties; Pinot Grigio and Nebbiolo and that these varieties will help carry the flag for the Yarra Valley into the future.
Soumah winemaker, Scott McCarthy, has been crafting great wine in the Yarra Valley for many years and has always strived to produce compelling, balanced wines that reflect the characters of the site and season from which they come.
