Gold Medal Australia Sparkling Wine Show 2019
90 points Huon Hooke
Dear UMAMU family,
This is our second Margaret River sparkling Chardonnay, which we continue to produce to celebrate each and every one of our wines.
We manage the VSP canopy to give the fruit dappled sunlight to give exposure while avoiding sunburn. The Chardonnay grapes for this sparkling wine were handpicked in the early morning on Valentine’s day. The whole bunch was pressed and fermented, then battonaged weekly for two months to make the sparkling base wine. The sparkling base wine then underwent secondary fermentation in the wine bottle, and each bottle was kept on lees and progress monitored with an intended minimum of three years. With careful monitoring of the wine’s development, the sparkling was disgorged after four years on lees.
So, made in the traditional method, this Margaret River sparkling Chardonnay has had four years on lees and drinks deliciously, a little more zingy than our previous 2005 vintage. This one was released 2nd February 2019.

Nose: Refined with citrus notes.
Palate: Fresh, elegant & refined, a drier crisp style with good length. Snow peas with royal gala apples.
