2019 RedHeads Studio Princess of Thieves GSM
Like all wines from Redheads Studio, this special wine also has a story. The Princess of Thieves tells the story of a fearless young lady who goes in search of a ruby red treasure of incredible beauty at night, when no one is aware. This ruby red wine steals everyone's heart with its seductive charms. The Princess of Thieves is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah. The Grenache comes from 65-year-old vines from the McLaren Flat with sandy soil. The Shiraz comes from Willunga and Sellick. The Mataro (Mourvèdre) comes from Ebenezer, in Barossa, from iron-rich, deep red soil. The grapes are fermented in open tanks, where the grape pulp is regularly pushed under. The wine is soaked extensively on the skins. The wine matures for 12 months in barrels, 75% French oak and 25% American oak.
In the glass, the Princess of Thieves has a scarlet color. Fresh red fruit on the nose with some raspberry jam and spices. In the mouth the wine is fruity, not too many tannins, warming and soft with raspberries, vanilla and cloves in the aftertaste. Long aftertaste.
Serve at Lekker with a pumpkin risotto or a delicious fresh Pizza

Redheads Studio winery is located in South Australia in the town of Tanuda, in the Barossa Valley where the dedicated team behind Redheads work tirelessly, from the vine to the bottle and beyond, to ensure the wines can always be in their best condition drunk.
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”
