Dogs of the Barossa is top ranking Shiraz – as sleek and intense as the beast on the label. It’s from RedHeads – a highly creative wine studio, crafting small batch cuvées that stand apart. Take in the dark spicy fruit of this triple Gold red.
"Stunning. Soft deep rich smooth and fruity, my absolute favourite Barossa ever tasted"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
Former winner of the Barossa Shiraz Trophy, Dogs of the Barossa is the story of a young dog in an old dog’s world. The ‘dog’ in this case is RedHeads studio proving its worth in the ancient Barossa, an area with some of the oldest vineyards in the world. Shiraz vines nearly 200 years old – France can’t get near it. Having led the pack in the McLaren Vale, site of the original cellar, RedHeads is showing that, set among some of the most iconic names of Australian wine (Henschke, Penfolds, Wolf Blass), their wines still stand out. The ethos of this cellar has always been to innovate and the winery can now boast a cult following for its small range of wines. This powerful Shiraz is still young, so decant early. Top choice with peppered steak.
