REDby CAROLINE DUNN
Fresh, lively, textural red wines from the Barossa Valley, made with respect for nature, a nod to tradition, and as the ideal complement to the relaxed Australian lifestyle.
Every seasonal variation, every sod of soil, every ray of sunshine, every drop of rain and every winemaking decision is etched into a wine’s very nature. Every wine has its own unique and mesmerising story to tell.
The concept of RED by Caroline Dunn came from a desire to create a range of uncomplicated, unpretentious red wines, simply made to tell the story of their origins and to taste good.
These are Barossa Valley reds that shout the spirit and character of the region, yet also carry my characteristic winemaking stamp. Wines that have plenty of bright Barossa fruit, reigned in with the restrained use of oak, and given a touch of finesse with silky textures and elegant style.
They are wines you can drink now, or put away for a few years. Wines you can drink with a meal, or wines you can drink on their own. But above all, these wines are made for enjoyment. Mine in making them and, with a bit of luck, yours in drinking them.
Welcome to summer! We’ve started the first day of the season here in the Barossa with a refreshing rain and a lovely cool, breezy day which is a nice respite from the recent 40+ days and record-breaking November heat.
But it looks like there’s plenty more warm weather in store over the next few months, with temperatures, once again, looking like they’ll be higher than average (*sigh*). And thanks to La Niña, we’re also expecting higher than average rainfall, especially across the eastern side of the country.
So what does this mean for our vineyards? Well, as usual when Mother Nature’s involved, the answer is… it depends. So far, so good. After a couple of very low cropping years, the 2021 vintage is shaping up to be a cracker, with good winter and spring rainfall setting the vines up beautifully and so far, not too many serious heat events. But, what happens next?
RED by Caroline Dunn wines are sourced from dedicated growers located in the Light Pass, Vine Vale and Stonewell sub-regions of the Barossa Valley. Vineyards are selected for their purity of fruit, elegance and balance.
