'Umamu Estate is one of Margaret River's quietest achievers; this wine shows yellow peach and ripe pineapple flavours with sweetly spiced oak and a touch of buttery richness. Soft and creamy with a final flourish of lemon acidity.' - Qantas 

TASTING NOTES

 Appearance: A clear vibrant pale straw.
Nose: Intense with nutty oak tones.
Palate: Delicate zesty fruit with hints of nutty characters and oak tones. Succulent and textured with lively crisp acidity and a pointed lingering finish.

 

2008 vintage provided even and mild ripening conditions.  The vineyard provided a delightful balance of flavour, structure and perfume.

We managed the VSP canopy to ensure that the fruit was sufficiently exposed while avoiding sunburn.

The grapes were hand-picked in the early morning late February, then whole bunch pressed and 100% barrel fermented.  The wine was then matured for 10 months in a combination of new and old French barrels from a variety of forests to integrate the fruit and oak aromas, flavours and textures in a seamless manner.
