Western Australian Chardonnay: panel tasting results
Umamu Estate, Margaret River 2008
Decanter average score: 17.25ts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Andrew Jefford 17.5 Roger Jones 18 Alessandro Marchesan 16.5
Elegant, complex nose with barrel-fermented notes and ripe stone fruit character. On the palate there’s a lovely mix of stone fruit, oats and ground almonds, and it has vinosity and sinew, too: just what you want for a mealtime Chardonnay.
