RedHeads Wilson Gunn Bellum Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2021

Barossa and Coonawarra

Top vintage of this cracking Cabernet Shiraz. Every year the RedHeads winemaker, Alex Trescowthick, chooses the best grapes. In 2021 these were two A-grade parcels from premium Barossa and Coonawarra. Immense kirsch, eucalyptus and lavish oak spice.

Henry Laithwaite is the originator of this wine, but he now has his hands full with his own English Sparkling wine estate in Marlow. So RedHeads winemaker, Alex Trescowthick, stepped up to the plate. He was handed a gift too. The Shiraz grapes were top notch for starters – from some of the winery's finest growers – usually destined for their Icon wines. The Cabernet is from Coonawarra, Australia's best region for this variety. It was a parcel destined for a larger cellar's flagship wine. The first year it was wrongly delivered to RedHeads! The grower rang and apologised for the fortuitous accident. It made a cracking wine and now Alex gets it every year! The superb conditions of 2021 only added to the wine's power, dense fruit and weight.

"Delicious. Smooth, strong, dark fruit flavours, even better with the second glass!" 5-Star Online Review
