Rachael Carter“I wanted to create a wine company that was sexy, fun, quality focused & reflected the social network associated with wine – a name that embodies this is SOHO.

Latest Review

Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is very fresh and tight with refined and pure, penetrating aromas of limes and lemons along with white florals, and chalky, thirst-quenching minerals. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is taut in concentration with good intensity of pure lime and lemon fruit flavours, entwined with white florals and mineral notes. The palate has refined and deep fruit extract textures and underlying mouthwatering acidity, and flows with positive linearity, leading to a long, dry, nuanced finish showing citrus fruits and minerals. This is a youthfully taut, off-dry Riesling showing pure lime and lemon fruit with florals and minerals, and a mouthwatering, fine-textured palate.
