Silver Medal Langton's Margaret River Wine Show Oct 2021

Dear UMAMU family,

It is a real privilege to offer you our Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc.

My mother's favourite wine (until UMAMU Estate of course!) was a Pavillon Blanc from Chateau Margaux in Bordeaux. So when we started making our own wine in the Margaret River, Western Australia, we just had to produce our own Sauvignon Blanc to emulate it. 

As winemakers, we are passionate about preserving memories, so I got my mum to write 'Blanc' on the front label. I also had Dad write 'For Ann' on the back. After Mum 'left for her next journey' I wanted to do something special with the 2011 and I submitted the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc to Qantas and was thrilled when it was served on Qantas International First Class and got to fly! And now a privilege to be able to share it with you.

This 2011 Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant, fresh, racy and mouthwatering with a mere 12% alcohol. Aged for ten months in French Oak Barrels before bottling.

Enjoy wine pairing? Why not try our UMAMU Estate Sauvignon Blanc with Seared Halibut and Zucchini?

Cheers!

The Real Review Huon Hooke October 2021

"Full yellow colour, bright and showing age. The bouquet confirms this as a mature sauvignon blanc with toasty, nutty aromas derived from development plus a suspicion of barrel, resulting in a beautifully spicy complexity that deftly mixes fruit and secondary characteristics. It's full-bodied and rich in the mouth, properly dry and savoury as well as generous and lingering. An excellent wine and a rare example of mature, ripe sauvignon blanc."

"Fresh given 10 yrs age/citrus/lemon/some toasty bottle age/weighty on the palate, drying out slowly on the finish but still good drinking"
