2018 Redheads Studio Whip-Hand Cabernet Sauvignon
Whip-Hand is so named to convey the struggle between vintner and the forces of nature - The Redheads winemaker thinks it's a joke against whatever nature throws at him. He kept an eye on the vineyards all year round, so he knew exactly where to pick his Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Strength, depth and structure were sought, supplemented with a little oak aging. Using old style open top fermenters, the wine was hand submerged and then aged in large sized barrels to promote complexity rather than overt oak.
As you would expect from the Whip-Hand, this delivers a powerful, very full bite. Deep dark red with a brick colored edge to indicate its age. Gently roasted blackberries, cassis and plums with some spices, tobacco and leather revealing the wine's maturity.
After a long, hard day in the vineyards, the Redhead Studio team wants nothing more than a slow braised beef tenderloin next to their Whip-Hand. The ripeness of the wine with its long-lasting taste needs a matching sauce! If you can spare some, adding a glass of wine to the dish before cooking will take it to a new level!

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.
