Head Wines Riesling 2021 12.5% 750ml

Expert Review:

Gary Walsh- 93 Points. Honey, green melon, citrus and spice. It’s rich with a glycerol texture, sizzled lime, juicy and a little savoury, kind of nutty too, chalk dust texture, apple and lemon/lime butter yet tight finish of excellent length. A different, but very good expression of Eden Valley Riesling. Also has a sort of petrol/mineral character, which is not overt, and kind of engaging.

Winemaker Alex Head's dream to make elegant Barossa wines began in 1999 while travelling through some of Europe's greatest wine growing regions, along with his longheld fascination with the synergy of good wine, fine food and happy company at the table. Head Wines is all that and more. Alex follows a traditional négociant model, an old practice where the winemaker does not grow their own grapes, instead working with a number of small growers. Around three-quarters of the grapes that end up in Head Wines' bottles are sourced from a carefully chosen selection of these elevated Eden Valley sites. All of these vineyards are farmed sustainably using organic principles where possible; yields are controlled and grapes are hand-picked. Not being tied to his own vineyards has allowed Alex to spend years understanding the strengths and weaknesses of a number of sites in pursuit of his individual style. Alex creates great Barossan wines that are memorably balanced whilst pursuing styles that are intentional and truly of place. This is sublime winemaking.
