Online Review For the 2014 vintage
RedHeads was Tony Laithwaite’s moment of inspiration that became a reality in 2002 – Bordeaux “garagiste winemaking without the pretension”. RedHeads started in McLaren Vale in a shed with lots of second hand kit, then moved to the Barossa. Whatever the region, the team have been great at maintaining strong connections with their grower mates. That way they've ensured a good supply of top notch grapes every year. This is a dark blend of Bordeaux varieties Cabernet, Merlot and even denser, big spice Petit Verdot, all from top areas in South Australia including Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale. Supple red fruits with a hint of cedar but still with quite a punch – the wine (say the team) is a dream with kangaroo steak. Great at a barbecue too.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
