Classic Barossa Shiraz... Succulent, balanced, and very long. Smell the velvet glove. Delightful.
About the Wine
The Blonde has become something of a Barossa Valley staple for those seeking the next wave of premium Barossa Shiraz for their cellar.
The Blonde is the more seductive and elegant of the Head Shiraz as a younger wine, but she's no slouch in the cellar. The 2016 is a sensational release, the season naturally producing powerful, luscious wines in general for the region - characteristics that work well in The Blonde.
Gary Walsh awarded this 95 points suggesting that this release was "Succulent, balanced, and very long... Delightful". A classic release of this much loved Shiraz from Alex.

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.
