About

For all his focus on site-expressive Barossan reds, this Riesling is one of Alex Head’s wines that I probably reach for the most.

The fruit comes from a 50ish-year-old vineyard near Springton in the Eden Valley, with the excellent, long, cool 2015 vintage allowing this wine to develop some intoxicating and concentrated flavour whilst retaining amazing natural acidity.

It’s light, bright and scintillatingly pure, and whilst delicious now will keep developing in the cellar for at least another decade.

94 points from Gary Walsh and terrific value for money.

What It Tastes Like

“White flowers, grapefruit, chalk and white peach. Light bodied, very firm acidity here, though carried by the vibrant citrus and crisp green pear flavours. Slaty, tight and lemony with a pulsating finish. Excellent.” - Gary Walsh
