WINES OF THE MONTH Australian Justin Lane, his “mate” Philbo Christiansen and several other so called marauders spent one day looking for sheds for sale in McLaren Vale to produce their wines but didn't find any.Then, the man serving coffee said "you can have this place if you want, I've had enough of this, I'm buying a camper and going right round Oz". And so they bought his café on the spot; 'Red Heads' it was called; on the corner of Kangarilla and Foggo roads. Outfitted the same grunge-garage way but with the most splendid bar you've ever seen (made from a whole tree!) plus a pinball machine and powerful amps... Red Heads Studio and its many members made its first wines in 2002. Of course, over ten years some studio members dropped by the wayside but the stalwarts remained and then did what they hoped they would; they set up sheds of their own and developed their wine offerings further. Suffice to say, people come and people go...the mantra of Red Heads still rings aloud, 'Drink more wine!'The collective garagistes are still pushing it hard and producing some crazy juice. Keith VanYahres Assistant General Manager In the words of our fun-loving Australian winos,“Yard Dog.The old faithful friend and beloved household pet the whole family adores. It is the quintessential companion, whatever the weather, the mood or the occasion. The same could be said for Chardonnay in Australia – cuddly, friendly, ready to roll over – and almost every winery owns some. Throw a little splash into a neglected variety like Verdelho and spice it up with some dry Riesling and hooah, one lovely glass of booze.”This delightful white is composed of 80%Verdelho, 15% Riesling, and 5% Chardonnay.

Yard Dog Red, South Australia 2016 Glass $8.75 / Bottle $33.00

“With Yard Dog, our winemakers aim for the classic Bordeaux blend – that is Cabernet with Merlot – but, as with all true Aussies, the winemaker is not one to stick to the standard blend. So, within the mix you’ll find the added benefits of Petit Verdot, a grape that's somewhat lost in popularity in Bordeaux circles. But we're here to champion the underdog.”This Bordeaux style wine is composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 10% Merlot.
