Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels. The tradition began 1901 when Bill Redman, at the tender age of fourteen, made the journey to take up an apprenticeship at the John Riddoch wineworks and to labour amongst Coonawarra's founding vineyards. Bill Redman's earliest vintages were sold off to other companies but it was not until 1952 that the Redman family released their own wines under the moniker Rouge Homme. Redman was finally branded under its own label in 1966, it remains one of the most enduring marques in Coonawarra.

The complexity, elegance and balance of Warre's Vintage Ports are a synergy of the great Quintas, da Cavadinha in Pinhão Valley and do Retiro in the Rio Torto. Warre also continue to make much of their Port by treading in stone lagares or shallow treading tanks. The Upper Douro is one of the last places in the world where traditional treading is still practised. This is not done to entertain visitors but because it continues to produce the best Port. Always the innovators, Warre have further developed a unique robotic lagar, a low and square tank fitted with mechanical treading pistons whose gentle movements replicate the action of the human foot by actually treading the grapes against the floor.
Dark ruby colour. The elegant nose exudes a characteristic Warre flowery nose. Tremendous backbone and a rich complexity of balanced fruit on the palate. It's solid structure indicates a long lasting Vintage.
