2019 RedHeads R'dotto Royale Italian Blend
The RedHeads R'dotto Royale Italian is a blend of the typical Italian grapes, namely Barbera, Montepulciano, Nebbiolo, Sagrantino, Sangiovese. The grapes come from various vineyards in the Adelaide region. The grapes are fermented in open tanks, with the grape pulp being pumped twice a day. The wine then ferments a second time in oak barrels to add extra color and intensity. The wine then matures for 10 months in used barrels (500 and 300 liters) of French and American oak. In the glass the wine is dark red with a purple glow. On the nose mainly red and dark fruit such as cherries, blackberries, raspberries and pomegranate. In the mouth the wine is very refined with lots of fruit, herbs, leather, tobacco and firm tannins, but also with a very good balance between the fruit and the acids, which makes the wine very complete. The wine is perfect with a medium-rare grilled steak with oven-roasted potatoes.

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. Redheads Wines says of itself: “A free-spirited, movement liberating the best grapes from the premium labels to make wines with soul, character and personality”
