Delightful. Good now, but won’t fall over for quite some time.
About The Wine
Made by the formidable Alex Head from a barrel declassification of some of his best wines, the Grenache fruit comes from several vineyards planted in the Barossa as far back as 160 years ago.
The varieties are all fermented separately, Alex looking for greater definition in each portion of the wine before blending the final product.
In this compact, delightful little wine you reap the benefits of decades worth of viticulture and a master craftsman winemaker. For the price, there are few wines in the Barossa that can hold a candle to this little number.
A brilliant value and very versatile modern Australian red wine.
About Head Wines
Alex Head has had what you might call a meteoric rise through the Australian wine industry. In his short career as a producer he has been heralded as one of the best Young Gun Winemakers, not only in the Barossa but the whole country.
With no formal training as a winemaker, the purity and balance inherent in the wines are amazing.
Alex has a passion for the old vineyards that populate the Barossa. With a keen eye for a good site, Alex has put together a formidable portfolio of vineyards which produce simply outstanding renditions of Shiraz and Grenache year-in, year-out.
These are some of the most exciting wines in the Barossa.
