Dear UMAMU family,
This wine is inspired by all those who touch our lives.
Our first Margaret River Rosé – 82% Cabernet Franc 18% Merlot – which was produced from a 0.4ha parcel of Cabernet Franc planted in 2001 with a top up of Merlot planted in 1997. Both plots at our UMAMU Estate just 10km of the Margaret River itself, one of Australia's most prized wine regions.
We approached this Margaret River Rosé by having an open canopy all of the growing season, so the fruit received gentle dappled light, which assisted with the growth of supple tannins and fragrant berry perfumes.
The fruit was cold crushed to press and cold settled before a 12°c ferment in barrel for 20 days. Then aged in barrel on lees for four months before bottling.
Beautiful delicate wine, delightful on its own or paired with food.
