Head Wines 'Old Vine' Grenache 2022


Alex Head specialises in Grenache and this wine is produced from a 160-year-old vineyard, one of the oldest in the world. ,  

We do know of a handful of other producers sourcing grapes from the same site and they all charge $100+ per bottle. Needless to say.....BARGAIN!

"Juicy, purple, ripe raspberry, brown spices. Gummy feel, saucy and spicy, tannin has some grit, and finish is jubey and fairly long. Feels a little different from the usual offerings from Head, in terms of Grenache, though that’s perhaps a function of the vintage." 93pts | Gary Walsh | WineFront

"Hand picked from 80-year-old Krondorf and 163-year-old Springton vines; foot trodden, hand plunged, matured in large-format oak. The bouquet is fragrant, with exotic spices showing the way, the palate juicy, laden with blue and purple fruits. Such tannins as exist simply add to the flavour." 96pts | James Halliday | Halliday Wine Companion
