Redman feature by James Halliday in The Australian

15Jun2017

In a recent James Halliday article in The Australian, Redman's received three glowing reviews. James's reviews on our wines can be read below and they all are available for purchase on this website.

2014 REDMAN THE LAST ROW LIMITED RELEASE COONAWARRA SHIRAZ From a single block of 80yo vines planted in the 1930s. Wild yeast open fermented, 13 days on skins, 18 months in French oak (66% new). Has old vine structure and depth of blackberry/black cherry/plum fruit to last for decades, underwritten by fine tannins. 14% alc; screwcap 95 points; drink to 2039; $30

2014 REDMAN COONAWARRA CABERNET SAUVIGNON A pure, slightly austere cabernet, with one foot in the past, one in the future. The present is reflected by the low-yield consequence of poor flowering. The result: an intense wine made from small berries and elevated tannins which, if nothing else, mean a long life. 13.4% alc; cork 94 points; drink to 2034; $33

2012 REDMAN COONAWARRA SHIRAZ From an exceptionally good vintage. Matured for 12 months in American and French hogsheads. Bright colour, then a bouquet filled with black cherry/blackberry fruit, oak also in the picture. A rich and long palate with great balance between the fruit, oak and tannins. Exceptional bargain via redman.com.au.14.1% alc; cork 95 points; drink to 2037; $19
