Alex Head is one of the Barossa's brightest young stars. He is, what you might call, a natural talent. With no formal winemaking training, the precision and skill with which he crafts his wines is quite incredible.

Arguably, the two wines in his portfolio that have gained him the most notoriety would be twin Shiraz; The Blonde and The Brunette. The Brunette is the slightly brawnier and more rustic of the two, a wine with intensity and power in spades.

This is one of the benchmarks for the next generation of Barossa Shiraz. This single vineyard in Moppa producing one of the future icon wines of the region. Collectors, get on board.

"This always excitingly sanguine rendering of Moppa’s ironstone and clay soils is in strong form here, with aromas of rust, dried plum, spiced blackberry compote and cocoa dust. The palate is an essay in harnessed power and richness with plenty of blackberry and plum, set amid fine but sturdy tannins. Drink or hold." - 95 points, jamessuckling.com
