The Red Sedan Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz

A deliciously moreish and silky blend of Shiraz and Cabernet from some of the best vineyards of South Australia – bright red berry fruit with cedary oak and satisfying length.

The Red Sedan is a luscious, 95-point Cabernet Shiraz from top South Australian vineyards. Like the iconic 1966 Ford Falcon Sedan featured on the label, this classic is a blast from the past – generous, smoky, black fruit and spiced oak.

THE STORY

The 1966 Ford Falcon Sedan (on the label) is a bit of a head-turner … useful in the courting days of the original RedHeads winemaker for one thing, and also when he visited his grower mates. A bit clapped out, this classic auto always seemed to solicit sympathy (well, it’s not the ubiquitous heavy-duty Ute that winemakers now favour) amongst them, and so he always managed to squeeze a few more top-class grapes from them.

Today, the RedHeads winemakers have given in to the lure of the Ute, but this wine keeps the memory of the old classic car alive … driving it across South Australia, on the road that links the McLaren Vale to the Barossa, looking for the best parcels of grapes.

THE WINE

Our artisan winemakers knocked it out of the park with this luscious 95-point Aussie classic.

Set free to make the wines that fire their own imaginations, they’ve been able to tap up their top grower mates for premium cabernet and shiraz grapes. A deliciously moreish and silky blend with berry and mocha notes, rounded tannins and spicy vanilla oak.
