The varietal blend of this wine may change year-on-year. It’s made using the best parcels of South Australian fruit our moonlighting winemakers are able to unearth.
‘Moonlighter’ captures the very essence of the RedHeads concept. Right at the beginning, when RedHeads started in the McLaren Vale, a handful of dedicated, rule-breaking, young winemakers, with a day job at the big corporations, would arrive at RedHeads studio early evening, down a cold beer, then start on crafting a ‘real’ wine, with all the unbridled passion you’d expect from the newly qualified winemaking elite Down Under.
At RedHeads, these winemakers were given free-rein to experiment in tiny quantities and the result was some terrific award-winning wines. The same goes on today in the Barossa Valley RedHeads winemaking studio and Moonlighters is a super-innovative blend of grapes and wine regions.
