This is our first of the MacAnn Sparkling series.
'MacAnn' is after our founders – my parents Mac & Ann – who discovered the Margaret River in the early 80s and fell in love with our vineyard in 1997.
Bursting to say hello and invite you for banter, MacAnn Sparkling is a wine for celebrations and especially when celebrating life.
MacAnn Sparkling is made from Semillon with a splash of Sauvignon Blanc in the traditional method.
The grapes were picked in the early morning on 15th March 2019 and battonaged weekly for two months to make the sparkling base wine. Then into bottle on the 25th July on lees for 15 months. Disgorged on the 27th October 2020 with 4g/L.

"Is there anything better than sparkling and seafood to bring in the festive season? If so, I haven't found it yet. UMAMU with their 2019 MacAnn Sparkling. A delicate yet lively Semillon sparkling. It worked wonder next to a bowl of prawns that's for sure. Very lively on the nose. Initially, quite grassy, although nicely refined by citrus rinds. Pale straw, with minuscule delicate bubbles. Fresh and energetic on the palate. Citrus, melon, and some nice brioche. Very tasty stuff. A nice dry finish to wrap everything up. Take the seafood out of the equation, and this is an extremely tidy and elegant sparkling. Happy drinking."
Appearance: A clear vibrant pale straw. Alive beads.
Nose: Refined with citrus notes.
Palate: Fresh, elegant & refined, a drier crisp style with good length. Snow peas with royal gala apples.
