No other emerging variety in the Barossa has shown as much promise as Montepulciano.
About The Wine
This is one of those perfect 'BBQ reds' that's built for easy drinking.
It's a wine that winemaker Alex Head wants to change people's ideas about what the Barossa is all about. This takes the lusciousness of the Barossa and meshes it to the ripe, spicy characters of the Italian variety, Montepulciano, making a moreish, modern Australian red ready for the guzzling.
It's bright, loves a slight chill in the fridge and is a delicious little bargain for any night of the week.
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.
