In the heart of the Barossa Valley sits the RedHeads Studio — set up 10 years ago by some of Australia's hottest young talents. These guys had day jobs at the country's top wineries, but knew their wines could be better — if only they didn't have to produce 40,000-plus cases.
Imagine the care you could take if you only had to make five barrels, not 500. It's a simple equation and, since RedHeads' beginning, reds of remarkable flavor and class have emerged — pounced on by collectors and raved about by leading wine critics: "A tour de force in winemaking … must be tasted to be believed," said Parker of a previous release.
Today, you enjoy access to their latest tiny-production rarity. Corroboree is a bold Shiraz that takes its name from an Aboriginal festival of music and dance — and takes its grapes from the famous Seppeltsfield district of Barossa, thanks to Head Winemaker Dan Graham's local connections.
In fact, to craft Corroboree, Dan liberated ultra-premium parcels from the same place that Australia's most iconic, $700-plus-a-bottle red sources their grapes. But because there's no big name on the label, you'll pay far (far) less, even though it's been lavished with the utmost care. Look forward to layers of ripe berry fruit, plus lovely smoky oak notes.
This is an incredible value that won't last long. Strictly limited cases were imported, and they're currently flying out of our cellar door.
