Dear UMAMU family,

We are excited to offer you this Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon from our wine cellar. Bottled in 2011, it has had some stunning reviews and is one our favourite Margaret River wines in honour of my mother, Ann.

This Cabernet is from our 1997 vines sourced from our family vineyard just 10km east of the actual Margaret River in Western Australia.

Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are one of the world's most recognisable and best-loved red wine grapes varieties. It is particularly grown in the Bordeaux region of southwest France, which has a very similar climate to that of the Margaret River. In fact Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon wines are the most produced variety from the wine region.

Our Cabernet Sauvignon vines are spur pruned and the canopies are split up and down. 

Fermentation was in a combination of open and closed static tanks and was completed in the tank before being pressed off skins at dryness after 12-18 days of skin contact. The wine was then matured for 18 months in French oak predominantly from the forests of Allier, Centre of France and Bertrange.

Stylistically we release our wines after they have had time to develop in the bottle, a French approach for releasing wines when they are ‘ready’.

Enjoy wine pairing? Why not try our UMAMU Estate Ann's Cabernet Sauvignon with Ribeye and Buckwheat Pasta (Gluten & Dairy Free)?

The Real Review, Cellar Talk Wines

93 points and 4 stars ****

"This wine is bright, fresh and well-coloured, young for its age, and remarkably Bordelais in its range of warm earth, raspberry, smoky, rhubarb aromas. It’s medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, rounded and smooth, with plenty of extract. A very smart wine. (Screwcap)"
— Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke also gave us a mention in his Jan 2020 article Cabernet Cavalcade.

"UMAMU releases all their wines with extra age. This has mellowed into a wine of uncanny Bordeaux-like character. Warm-earth, smoky overtones mingle with raspberry and rhubarb notes. It's medium-bodied and smoothly rounded, with ample fleshy extract. Screw-cap. 13.8 per cent alcohol. Ageing? Best now to six years."

Palate: Rich, powerful dark fruits with soft smooth integrated tannins with good length and delicious layers of complexity.  Exciting!
