About the Wine
For all his focus on site-expressive Barossan reds, this Riesling is one of Alex Head's most loveable wines.
The fruit comes from a 50ish-year-old vineyard near Springton in the Eden Valley, with the 2016 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.

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.

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.
