Huon Hooke reviews UMAMU Ann's Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 93 pts and mentions in article Cabernet cavalcade Jan 2020

There were many highlights in my latest cabernet tasting with Margaret River not surprisingly dominant. Eddie McDougall’s 2016 and 2017 ‘Cabernets’ – which are both red Bordeaux blends – showed well as did UMAMU Estate Ann’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 (remarkably young and uncannily St-Émilion-like) and Flowstone Queen of the Earth 2015 (elegant and lovely).
2018 UMAMU ROSÉ
Light salmon pink hues, this wine is fresh and floral with hints of red berries. It's a lovely start to a conversation – crisp, delicate red fruits, elegantly sophisticated and lingering.
What varieties do you use in this wine?
We use 82 per cent cabernet franc and 18 per cent merlot. We wanted to produce the best rosé we could, and chose to make one in the style of a Chinon cabernet franc rosé of the Loire Valley in France, which are among the greatest rosé wines.
How should we enjoy this wine over the coming months?
Any way you like! It’s delicious on its own, and versatile as it pairs well with everything from delicately prepared savoury seafood to sweet roast duck. We believe this is because of the cabernet franc component.
