Head Wines The Brunette Shiraz 2018


| /

From a Shiraz vineyard planted on top of Moppa Hill, sitting at 380m above sea level, which makes it the highest elevation on the western ridge of the Barossa. 40% new barrique.

Very spicy and exotic, lapsang souchong tea, vanilla and perfume, ovaltine, crisp blackberry. Medium-bodied, earthy and savoury, tea and spice, tightly knit tannin, distinctly non-fruity, though has flavour including a sort of blackcurrant intensity. Dry and pulsing through the finish. Distinct personality and interest here.
