About the guide
The James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015 is the number one bestselling guide to wineries and wine in Australia. Keenly anticipated by winemakers, faithful collectors and wine lovers alike, the 2015 edition has been completely revised and updated to bring you up-to-the-minute information.
Halliday shares his extensive knowledge via detailed tasting notes, each of which includes vintage-specific ratings and advice on optimal drinking, as well as alcohol content, price and a value rating. He provides important details on wineries - including opening times, contact details, vineyard sizes and web addresses - in addition to biographies on each, and information about the winemakers.
Shiraz 2007 receives 93 points by Huon Hooke and is featured in Gourmet Wine Traveller Oct/Nov13 issue - Top 100 New Releases & Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.
We are thrilled to share that James Halliday rated UMAMU 5 Stars in his 2014 Wine Companion.
We will be participating at the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter in London on Saturday & Sunday 17-18th November at the Landmark Hotel. Hope to see you there! To book tickets please visit
