Redman Wines wins four trophies!
Redman Winery has won four trophies collectively for its 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon at the Rutherglen Wine Show
• Best Australian Dry Red Wine, 2016 and 2015 Vintages
• Best Australian Dry Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015 and Older
• Best Table Wine produced by a Small Winery
• Best Australian Dry Red Table Wine of Show
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, produced by brothers Bruce and Malcolm Redman, impressed the judges with its excellent flavour and varietal definition with rich fruit and young fresh tannins, aromas of dark berry fruit and overtones of oak.
The fruit came from vines that are more than forty years old, carefully hand pruned on the Redman family vineyards in the heart of Coonawarra.
“40yo vines, crushed, open-fermented, 7 days on skins, matured in French oak (25% new) for 12 months, six gold medals, four trophies. A great example of hands-off winemaking, and of the very best of the Redman medium-bodied style. Cassis fruit, modest French oak and ripe but fine tannins are seamlessly woven together. The X-factor? Picked at perfect ripeness, down to the very days” – 96 Points James Halliday Cellaring Selections 2018
