UMAMU Estate Chardonnay 2018


From vines planted by the family some twenty years earlier, the Margaret River region enjoyed its usual superb vintage in 2018. Skin contact is avoided with gentle pressing of whole bunches and barrel fermentation. A richly flavoured Chardonnay here, bright yellow in colour. A lovely creamy, nutty nose with peaches and orange rinds, melons and a flick of grapefruit. Juicy citric acidity and fine balance here, with decent length. Drink over the next four to six years.
