The Red Sedan is a luscious Cabernet Shiraz from top South Australian vineyards. Like the iconic 1966 Ford Falcon Sedan featured on the label, this classic is a blast from the past – generous, smoky, black fruit, spicy liquorice and toasty oak.
"Smooth and full-bodied. One of the best reds I have tried, lovely with anything, just delicious"
If you fancy a bona fide Aussie wine experience, crack open a bottle of this handcrafted classic. It’s from the tiny RedHeads Studio – a kind of utopia for a small troop of lucky winemakers. Here, freedom from the corporate rule book, healthy competition between ‘mates’ and an overriding air of creativity beget great wines. Wines that have caught the imagination of critics and customers alike. Cabernet and Shiraz grapes were selected from top South Australian vineyards, then fermented in small vats with regular plunging of the grape skins to extract maximum colour and flavour. Gentle ageing in oak has resulted in luscious berry fruit with underlying tones of creamy vanilla and spice. A tasty accompaniment to shepherd’s pie, lamb or steak.

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
