2020 Redheads Studio Barrel Monkeys Shiraz
This Barrel Monkeys Shiraz is what you would call a masterly representation of the strengths of RedHeads Studio. Every year, this winery uses only the best Shiraz grapes from the McLaren Vale region, not tied to any grower. These grapes therefore fully represent what nature, the climate and the weather conditions had to offer. For 2014, this meant grapes from cooler, more coastal Willunga and nearby Sellicks were used. Year after year, RedHeads winery guarantees a wealth of fruit and power, framed by the soft vanilla notes of large American oak barrels that ensure a consistently powerful, delicious and irresistible wine. Deep purple in color with bread aromas of dark red fruits (plums and mulberries) and a slightly sweet scent of cedar oak. Velvety with powerful, spicy blackcurrants and raspberries, finished with notes of smoky flesh, and pleasant tannins.
This Barrel Monkeys Shiraz already tastes very nice and velvety but also has a high cellar potential. The firm structure allows the wine to be aged for another 5-8 years. After that time, the taste has deepened further and more interesting flavors have developed. This shiraz is delicious with lamb, a good steak or grilled pork.
