Moonlighters Red Blend South Australia Red Heads Studio 2007

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Wineexpress.com Under-The-Radar Winery of the Year! Another over-the-top delicious wine from the folks at Red Heads. This is a blend of grape lots from Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon but blended with 23% Petit Verdot and 21% Tannat, so you get the superb cassis-berry fruit from the Cab with, the meaty richness of the Tannat and the exotic floral spice of the Petit Verdot; a knockout combination. Aged 30 months in French oak hogsheads for a beautiful dusting of brown spice and vanilla. Production is tiny and of course the winemakers at Red Heads are moonlighting to make these awesome wines. But as far as we're concerned they can quit their day jobs 'cause they've hit it big! Don't miss this one!!
