Winemaking and Drinking

RedHeads Wine, known for its innovative approach to winemaking, brings forth another masterpiece with the MC1R Rouge Pinot Noir Shiraz 2018. This blend is a testament to the winery's commitment to crafting unique and memorable wines. The journey of this wine begins in the picturesque vineyards of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills, regions renowned for producing some of Australia's finest grapes.

The MC1R Rouge is named after the gene responsible for red hair, reflecting the wine's vibrant and bold characteristics. The 2018 vintage is particularly special, born from a season that experienced a cooler climate, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and develop complex flavors. The winemaking team at RedHeads meticulously selected the best Pinot Noir and Shiraz grapes, ensuring a perfect balance between the two varietals.

Vineyard and Winemaking 

The vineyards of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills provide the ideal terroir for these grapes. McLaren Vale, with its Mediterranean climate, imparts rich, ripe fruit flavors to the Shiraz, while the cooler, elevated Adelaide Hills contribute the elegance and finesse of Pinot Noir. The grapes are handpicked at the peak of ripeness and undergo a careful fermentation process. The wine is aged in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels, enhancing its complexity and depth.

Tasting Notes

The RedHeads MC1R Rouge 2018 is a wine that captivates from the first pour. In the glass, it exhibits a deep ruby color with hints of purple. The nose is an enticing blend of red berries, black cherries, and subtle floral notes, complemented by a touch of vanilla and spice from the oak aging.

On the palate, this wine offers a harmonious balance of elegance and boldness. The Pinot Noir contributes a silky texture and vibrant acidity, with flavors of raspberry, strawberry, and a hint of cranberry. The Shiraz adds depth and richness, with dark fruit notes such as blackberry and plum, intertwined with pepper and chocolate nuances. The tannins are well-integrated, providing a smooth and lingering finish.
