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.
Thanks to Nigel Dolan, co-creator of Dolan & Dunn wines, for today’s guest post on the history of the Adams family and Langhorne Creek’s celebrated Metala vineyard, source of our cheekily named Longhorn Peak Shiraz Cabernet.
Making wine is not always an easy pastime, but it works a lot better if you have an understanding and relationship with the vineyard you’re working with. I’m very fortunate to have now had a nearly thirty-year working relationship, and lifelong knowledge, of one vineyard – the iconic Metala vineyard of Guy and Liz Adams in Langhorne Creek.
Guy is a fifth-generation descendant of William Formby, who purchased the property in 1882, originally as a staging post for the Adelaide to Melbourne stage coach. In 1891 the first vines were planted on the property’s rich soils on the Bremer River floodplains.
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.
