Every great winemaker starts as a ‘barrel monkey’, dragging hoses and clambering over barrel stacks. At the pioneering RedHeads Studio, their true genius can be unleashed on some of the greatest fruit there is to offer. It was Tony Laithwaite’s genius idea – to bring together some of the hottest winemaking talent in Australia and let them make tiny batches of remarkable wines in their spare time. It started in a shed in the McLaren Vale, equipped ingeniously with others’ old kit and carefully restored. The cellar has recently been ‘reborn’ at its very own shed in the Barossa to lend a new creative boost, under the guidance of Aussie Alex Trescowthick. Using a top selection of McLaren Vale Shiraz, this is a big, spicy red. Spot on with lamb.
