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.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

This is crunchy Eden Riesling. It's floral. It's limey. It's slatey. It whips through the mouth at break-neck pace. It sizzles and crackles as it goes. It's a great rendition of the the style. A touch of sweetness gives it a little more weight but finishes crisp and lipsmacking. Good stuff.
