Tasting Notes

Winery Note:

This Eden Valley Grenache comes from a 155 year old vineyard in Springton on brown and grey sandy loam over yellow clays. 30% whole-bunch fermented in a wooden vat, no crushing or temperature control, natural yeasts, hand plunged and foot trodden twice daily for 3 weeks. Racked once during elevage of 12 months in used thick staved 600L demi-muid with a small addition of old vine mourvedre for balance. Made with complete respect to the fruit and aiming above the great CNDP in terms of quality and longevity. Bottled unfined and unfiltered under stelvin capsule.

Winery Note:

HEAD Wines was started in 2006 by Alex Head. It focuses on single site Rhone varietals from the Barossa and Eden Valleys in South Australia. Each HEAD Wine shows a distinctive house style of powerful fruit weight, elegance, freshness, finesse and balance which starts by farming vineyards sustainably and in some cases using organics and biodynamics. Yields are low/controlled, grapes are hand-picked, ferments use indigenous yeasts with some retention of stems and maturation in larger format barrels. Minimal sulphur is used during the whole wine-making process and bottling is without fining or filtration. Each Head Wine not only represents Alex Head's strong views on what makes balanced, drinkable wines for the table, but a guarantee of absolute quality, value and consistency. - Winery Note
