Redhouse Mediterrané 2015
Crafted by an Italian wine expert, David Ridge, this is almost entirely Sangiovese but with a splash of Lagrein and Merlot. The style leans more toward a rustic country wine, showing meatier, stock-like impressions, as well as earthy and savoury graphite and tarry notes, and – if you look for it – dark cherry fruits. It all translates to being much like a working man’s Chianti to be drunk out of tumblers – and it really comes to life after airing for several hours, even days. 4.5 stars Tony Love

TOP 100 WINES 2016
Crafted by Italian wine expert, consultant and importer David Ridge, this Barossa sangio sets up a duet of earthier, savoury tones with the variety’s medium weight, assisted by a juicy black cherry-fruit spectrum and soft-gripped mouth feel. The result is an immensely drinkable, adaptable and well-balanced wine that reflects an easy going, food companionship that the Italians take for granted at the table.
Redhouse Mediterrané 2013
Barossa Sangiovese. A decade or two ago, who would have thought?
Smells and tastes like Sangiovese, with a little Barossa thrown in.
Plum, hazelnut and spice with a whiff of aromatic herbs and chocolate.
Medium bodied, fresh, beef jerky in with dark cherry, light raspy tannin, nuts and a dry finish.
Classic, food friendly style. Good.

Redhouse Mediterrané 2012
Italian-accented Barossa red. It’s ripe yet savoury, medium bodied, with a grainy tannin backbone.
Food idea: Gnocchi with pumpkin, sage and taleggio.
