Redgate Wines

Redgate is another of the many boutique wineries around Margaret River. Established by the late Bill Ullinger in 1977 it is one of the older wineries of the region. Set in pretty grounds south of the town site, it boasts an impressive and attractive cellar door, and continues to produce good quality wines, with the flag ship Ullinger Reserve a standout.

Cellar

On our recent visit we were able to try a number of the wines on offer – sadly their rosé was a little way from release so we will have to return to sample that.

2014 Redgate Chenin Blanc

Aromatic nose of passion fruit, lychees with zesty citrus notes. The palate is dominated by juicy fruit, with a little residual sugar balanced by fresh acidity. Good, light, refreshing current drinking. (89).

2014 Redgate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Grassy notes, with tropical fruit and lime on the bouquet. Crisp, well balanced palate, lemon and green apple on the mid palate, finishing satisfyingly dry and clean. (90)

ExtRed

2013 Redgate Bin 588

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Shiraz, this exhibits plums, blueberry, violets and cinnamon aromas; with blackcurrant, plum, and mulberry flavours boosted by some mid palate peppery notes. A good, easy drinking wine which will gain something in the bottle. (90)

2013 Redgate Cabernet Franc

This crimson purple wine has lifted aromas of chocolate, cherries and violets, with a hint of tobacco. Full bodied, finely balanced oak supported by silky tannins, flavours of ripe dark fruit and chocolate. Should age beautifully over the next 5-7 years. (92)

Chooks

2013 Redgate Cabernet Sauvignon

Heightened aromas of plums, blackcurrants, tobacco and mint; the palate is soft and full, with ripe fruit flavours supported by smooth tannins and well integrated oak. (91)

2012 W.W Ullinger Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Their flagship red made from the best barrels of the vintage, the nose shows lifted aromas of blackcurrants, olives, with minty overtones. It has excellent, velvety mouthfeel, silky smooth tannins, well balanced, persistent long finish. This should improve in the bottle over ten years plus. A lovely wine. (94)
