You’d never expect RedHeads to stick to the norm when it comes to blends. Why not try ripe, berry scented Pinot Noir with dense blackberry rich Shiraz, all Barossa born? The balance is spot on – a gentle supple, Gold medal red and fruity too.
"Delicious! A bit confused by a Pinot Noir Shiraz blend but it’s really, really good"
Some of the best wines are the product of happenstance! RedHeads were delighted in 2017 to receive a parcel of fabulous Pinot Noir from Matt and Deb Poole, champion growers in the Barossa for generations. They knew without doubt that their 2017 Pinot Noir was way too good to disappear into any blend. RedHeads was the happy beneficiary and with it made a cracking red. But what to do with that little bit of Pinot Noir left after bottling, along with a tasty portion of Barossa Shiraz from the ‘Dogs’? Unorthodox though it may be, they blended them and the terrifically tasty Adelais is the result. It was what the Aussies used to do – put together a blend and label it Burgundy. Except this one isn’t called Burgundy and it does contain Pinot Noir!

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
