Six Gold medals for this terrific, handcrafted, Barossa Valley red from the tiny winemaking studio RedHeads. It’s made from grapes sourced from three great vineyards, picked out because yields there were so low and flavour correspondingly powerful. There’s dense, weighty flavour from Lyndoch’s black soils, the brighter fruit style from Rosedale to the west, while the third is from renowned Seppeltsfield, all hand picked. Jancis Robinson MW described RedHeads’ winemaking crew as “genius”, while Wine Advocate said their wine “has to be tasted to be believed”. A weighty, full-on Barossa Shiraz with a cloak of toasty spice oak wedded to the lush blackberry fruit. Masterful with lamb in all sorts of guises, barbecued steak or a hearty casserole.
