Winery Tasting Notes

90 % Shiraz (1654), 10% Grenache.

Deep crimson red. Pretty red to blue fruits on the nose with some plum & chocolate. The palate is

round & soft with some mulberry and spiced fruits. Finishing with smoky, fine, long tannins and

flavour to impress. Delicious! Drink now or cellar fro 5 years.- Alex Head.

Winery Profile

Very much a rising star, Alex Head has taken the long path to wine-making, starting with a degree in Biochemistry at Sydney University, then stints in fine wine retail, wholesale importers and auction houses. He followed this with vintage at a handful of superb Australian wineries including Torbreck and Tyrrells, before heading out on his own, with his first releases in 2008.

Already rated a 5-star producer by James Halliday and named one of his Top Ten Best New Wineries for 2011, Alex's wines are inspired by the wines of France's Cote Rotie, in particular, and are produced in quantities of at most one or two barrels.
