This is one of the best 'BBQ reds' you are going to find from the Barossa Valley. It's a wine that winemaker Alex Head wants to change people's ideas about what the Barossa is all about. The 2016 combines Pinot Noir, Montepulciano and Touriga into a moreish, modern Australian red ready for the guzzling. It's seen barely a whisper of oak, relying on the fruit freshness from a high elevation to take the fore. It's bright and loves a chill in the fridge - a different beast to last year but delicious little bargain none-the-less.

What it Tastes Like

Puff of red berries and chocolate. Pretty and herbal, not at all the things you think of from the Barossa. Pinot with a bit of guts and game. Light in body, crisp and clean in flow. Smooth tannin and a fresh finish laced with herbs and a lick of game. Interesting wine but without loosing drinkability. 20 mins in the fridge would work a treat.
