About

Alex Head is one of the Barossa's brightest young stars. He is, what you might call, a natural talent. With no formal winemaking training, the precision and skill with which he crafts his wines is quite incredible. Arguably, the two wines in his (ever expanding) portfolio that have gained him the most notoriety would be twin Shiraz's; The Blonde and The Brunette. The Brunette is the slightly brawnier and more rustic of the two, a wine with intensity and power in spades. This is one of the benchmarks for the next generation of Barossa Shiraz. This single vineyard in Moppa producing one of the future icon wines of the region. Collectors, get on board.

What it Tastes Like

"Fresh blackberry and boysenberry, spice, liquorice, tar and dried herbs. Medium bodied, juicy bramble fruits, crisp boysenberry acidity, salted beef, firm but fine grained drying tannin, and a long fresh meaty herb infused finish. Has a bit of X-Factor, but needs time to settle into its stride." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
