2018 Redheads Dogs of the Barossa
Dogs of the Barossa is the story of a young dog in a world full of old hands. Eager to prove himself, the young dog is now showing what he's worth with all his strength and vivacity in Barossa. It has a super sensitive nose to pick up every aroma and a fantastic palate and liver to endure all the tasting. Its claws are perfect for gently crushing the grapes. Its tail will keep it balanced, and its back legs will take it far in the finish's long-distance race!
The grapes come from the Koounga vineyard in Barossa of winemaker John Kalleske. With a deep layer of clay, the roots of the grapevines have to search for limited groundwater here, which gives concentration, strength and depth. The grapes are fermented in open tanks, with the grape pulp being pumped over twice a day. The wine then ferments a second time in oak barrels to add extra color and intensity. The wine then ages for 18 months in new French oak barrels and used American oak. In the glass, this top model from Redheads is a deep dark red with black cherries and raspberries in the nose, a cigar box (tobacco and cedar wood) and charcoal. In the mouth the wine is full bodied, firm, full of silky tannins and with sweet cherries and notes of oak.

It all started with a few Aussie winemakers who went to France to show the 'old hands' some new tricks there. Australian wine had conquered the world in the 1970s and 1980s. That's why Tony Laithwaite brought some Aussies to France. It was there that the very beginning of RedHead's new viticultural movement was laid.
In a small shed in McLaren Vale, a former Indian restaurant, some winemakers took on the challenge of making their dream come true: making beautiful, creative wines in small volumes with primary focus on quality.
They wanted to make wines without being bothered by all kinds of business worries, which resulted in an explosion of creativity and experiments.
Meanwhile, winery Redheads is making great international progress and they still give young talents the opportunity to let their creativity and talents loose on the best grapes in the region.
