91 points Huon Hooke Drink till 2025
We are SO excited to receive this wonderful review from Gourmet Traveller WINE Apr May 2021 issue – Australia’s leading independent drinks journal.
“UMAMU Estate specialise in aged wines. The colour is still light-mid yellow, the bouquet is limy and gently toasty and nutty, with background traces of snow pea, the palate is light and crisp, dry and soft at the same moment. A well made wine that is aging placidly." Huon Hooke
4 stars and 91 points – wow with a drink till 2025! Lovers of UMAMU wine will know we take great pride in aged wines, and this review has made our hearts warm.

"What a well matured SBS should taste like. Vibrant green hue; a bouquet showing citrus, straw and a touch of toasty oak and pallet with nice texture and acidity and a long and fresh finish." Frank Smith Have a Go News Wine Columnist.

54% Sauvignon Blanc 36% Semillon
The Sauvignon Blanc parcel planted in 1987 while the Semillon planted in 1997 is on single cane. Both vine canopies are managed in order to improve light interception and hence development of flavours during ripening while reducing any microclimate humidity. The Sauvignon Blanc is located at 130 metres above sea level, one of the highest in the Margaret River region. The varieties were vinified separately, selecting an aromatic yeast for the Sauvignon Blanc, and a textural yeast for the Semillon. A portion was fermented in French oak barrels to provide some background complexities and textures. The final blend was assembled when all the wines had completed fermentation. A versatile wine.
