Dear UMAMU family,

A real privilege to offer you this Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc Semillon (Margaret River SBS), bottled in 2016.

Our Sauvignon Blanc parcel was planted in 1987, while our Semillon parcel was planted in 1997 and on single cane. Both vine canopies are well managed in order to improve light interception and hence development of flavours during ripening, while reducing any microclimate humidity. 

The Sauvignon Blanc parcel is located at 130 metres above sea level – one of the highest in the Margaret River wine region. The balance of the Sauvignon Blanc to Semillon is 64% to 36% respectively.

A portion of the Semillon was fermented in French oak barrels to provide some background complexities and textures. A very versatile Margaret River wine.

Enjoy wine pairing? Why not try our UMAMU Estate SBS with Dover sole, capers & lemon?

While I'd has a case of wine writers block during this little interesting period, I've looked toward an old favourite to help me bust out of my slump and get my tastebuds dancing in joy. Why choose UMAMU? Well it's pretty easy. They make wine buying and drinking easy. Release the wine when it's right to drink. How hard is that? Why aren't more wineries doing this? Why settle for less than this? Now this little gem. The first thing you notice is the balance. No sharp acidity, no citrus smack and everything in its place. Such a fruit salad here. Peach, nectarine, rockmelon and hints of asparagus and mild oak. A simple choice to pair with my very own Seafood Risotto recipe. Why gamble on wine when UMAMU made it a one wine race.

"Light yellow colour with a herbal, snowpea and slightly tom-catty grassy/thiol character. There are also nutty barrel and toasty bottle-age characteristics. The wine is rich and intense, and really fills the mouth. It's soft, round and ample. The vegetal notes are turning into honey already. A wine with plenty of appeal."

"More delicate than many in its price/region/style category, and none the worse for that. Gentle tropical and stone fruits sit alongside citrussy acidity, the acidity, too, in balance. 12% alc."

Tasting Notes

Appearance: A clear vibrant pale straw with green hues.

Nose: Beautiful citrus coming through and herbaceous.
