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.
Most often, Mataro is found as the M in GSM (also known as Mourvèdre or Monastrell or by a whole host of other names). But it’s so much more than that.
To me, Mataro as a single variety is a beautifully alluring wine that’s often underrated. While it’s quite a rustic variety, it can also be made into a sleek and modern style that shouts proudly of its earthy Barossa roots and seduces with its silky-smooth gracefulness and spice.
I think it’s the perfect food wine, going so well with a whole range of meaty flavours (whether from meat itself, or from ‘meaty’ veggies like beetroot and mushrooms), but the ultimate match for me is food with a good dose of spice, especially those lovely Chinese spices like ginger, five-spice and star anise. And fragrant herbs like thyme, sage or rosemary are pretty good too.
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.
