Food. Wine. Music. Friends. The harmonious combination of the four, come alive at the Sunset Wine Event happening this 18th & 19th February at Scarborough Beach, Perth.
It is with great pleasure to announce that UMAMU will be taking part to share with you our beautifully crafted wines. A special treat will be in store for those who come as we will be debuting our award winning, 2010 babies - UMAMU Sauvignon Blanc Semillon & UMAMU Mac’s Chardonnay.
“A prime example of the way the best of these blends - even where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant partner - can age with intense grace.” - James Halliday
Rated with a high score of 94 points by none other than the highly acclaimed James Halliday; our Sauvignon Blanc Semillon comes beautifully coloured with tones of pale straw and light green hues. The Sauvignon Blanc Semillon gives a refreshing herbaceous and citrus aromas with every whiff and the lovely balanced mouthful will leave you wanting more.
Mac’s Chardonnay on the other hand is unlike the rest of the Chardonnays produced by UMAMU. This luscious bottle is especially unique and is close to our hearts. It is named after UMAMU’s patriarch, Mac in celebration and appreciation of his journey and love for Chardonnay which led him to Margaret River, over 30 years ago. We debut this wine in the same month as Mac’s birthday with much love.
“The bouquet is good but does not prepare you for the intensity and purity of the palate, where white flesh stone fruit and grapefruit draw saliva from every corner of the mouth.” - James Halliday
Each bottle of this lovely Chardonnay contains grapes which have been hand picked in the early mornings of late February. Whole bunched pressed and 100% barrel fermented with a combination of new and old French oak, Mac’s Chardonnay elegantly dances around the palate with its rich and succulent fruit flavours and nutty creamy texture. Just like any ending of a great performance, Mac’s Chardonnay ends smoothly with a buttery lingering finish.
Come, enjoy and experience the fun with us at Booth #18, where you will be able to participate in our exquisite tastings and be one of the first to bring home our latest award-winning wines.
