RedHeads Studio was founded by a group of young winemakers, who started their own wine estate in McLaren Vale, Australia. Together they seek out the best plots of South Australia and 'liberate' grapes from the hands of the big names to make wines with soul, character and personality.

Shiraz is to Aussies what Bourgogne Pinot Noir is to the French or Napa Cabernet to the Americans. It is the undisputed top grape of the country and the 'King of Barossa'. The grapes come from the Marananga region in Barossa. The grapes are gently crushed and then fermented in open tanks. This takes about 14 days. The wine then matures for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.

Color Deep dark red.
Scent Blackberries, blackcurrants and plums. Pepper, eucalyptus and toast.
Taste Full and rich Shiraz with supple tannins. Lots of fruit, but also pepper and meaty notes. Wood aging notes, such as vanilla and toast.
Serve at Lekker with a large steak.

Vineyard for 2021 Redheads King of Barossa Shiraz

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”
