Dear UMAMU family,

This is the first and only year so far we have produced our Margaret River Shiraz in our Red Seal Hallmark collection.  

Produced from single small block vines planted in 1978 with 14 months in French barrels.   

If you would like a combination of our wines that is not listed on our cart or for delivery outside Australia, please contact us on umamu@umamuestate.com

Cheers!

Reviews

James Halliday

96 points

"Bright crimson hue; it is the first time shiraz has been included in its red seal collection. The bouquet is wondrously complex, with a collection of exotic spices establishing its quality before it is tasted, and when that occurs it simply validates the promise of the bouquet. While there is a lot of oak on the mid-palate in particular, it breaks free on the long finish. Screwcap. 13.8% alc." Drink till 2035.

Huon Hooke

90 points

"Deepish, bright red colour with a tint of purple. The bouquet is fresh and berry-like, plummy and very ripe, despite a trace of pepper, the palate medium to full-bodied and sweet-fruited, with hints of licorice and aniseed as well as iodine. There's a little jamminess, the tannins slightly clunky, adding some chew to the finish and aftertaste." Drink till 2031.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Ruby red.

Nose: Pepper & black cherries.

Palate: Rich, juicy and generous with black cherries & blueberries, smooth with integrated tannins, good length with a lingering liquorice & mint finish. Delightful.
