Superb Gold medal winner – gorgeously rich and fruity McLaren Vale Shiraz with luscious fruit power and soft vanilla oak.
Every great winemaker starts as a ‘barrel monkey’, dragging hoses, clambering over barrel stacks, digging out and scrubbing the tanks. At the pioneering RedHeads Studio, their true genius is unleashed each vintage on some of the greatest fruit South Australia has to offer.
This wine is a celebration of all those newly qualified talents, who came first to our McLaren Vale studio, to try their hand at making tiny batch, experimental wines in primitive, garage-like conditions … and made some terrific one-off prize winners. The same continues in the Barossa and here, in particular, with the luscious-fruit power of Barrel Monkeys, winner of Gold at the Sommelier Wine Awards this year.
