Impossible to imagine an Aussie red offering more for the money than The Corroboree Barossa Shiraz. A staggering six Gold medals ... grapes sourced from three hand-picked vineyards in Australia’s greatest fine wine region ... a winemaking team described by Jancis Robinson MW as “genius”. The sort of red, in short, that you’d expect to be £20 ... £25 ... £30+
Yet The Corroboree Shiraz is just
£14.99 £12.99 a bottle
The Corroboree is special. The handiwork of RedHeads Studio, whose wine “has to be tasted to be believed”, to quote leading industry publication The Wine Advocate. They’re a tiny winery working in Barossa Valley — the place that put Australia on the fine wine map with the fullest-bodied, biggest-flavoured Shiraz in the world. These days everyone wants Barossa. But there’s a world of difference between the bulk supermarket brands and The Corroboree.
This is the best Shiraz that RedHeads could find; skillfully sourced and “liberated” from the big players and turned into a limited edition masterpiece. Its concentrated blackcurrant, leather and chocolate notes with lashings of spicy oak, have scooped Gold medals at no fewer than six of wine’s loftiest competitions.
And the best news? Tony Laithwaite helped RedHeads get started many years ago, so you enjoy prices no-one else sees. It’s a VIP mate’s rate — and a ‘thank you’ for your constant belief that boutique wineries run by people who genuinely care simply make better quality wines.
