‘Nouveau’ represents new ideas about sustainability and drinkability of wine styles in the Barossa Valley.
An un-oaked blend of Touriga Nacional (Portugese) with its trademark rose petal aromatics and Montepulciano (Italian) for its fresh cherry flavours has produced a delicious, easy drinking red wine for all year round. Sustainable farming, low alcohol, light weight bottle, recycled cement label and low in sulphur. Chill & Enjoy!
2014 HEAD ‘Nouveau’ Touriga & Montepulciano, Marananga – Barossa Valley
Opaque crimson red. The nose shows violets, earth, spiced cherries and licquorice. Light bodied red fruit on the palate with fresh, vibrant, juicy tonic-like tannins. Completely smashable, diverse and delicious. The perfect luncheon wine to enjoy chilled with Spanish tapas. Drink now and over 5 years.
An un-oaked 65/35% blend that actually meets Alex Head’s agenda: a perfumed bouquet (cherry blossom, rose-petals & spice) and a black cherry palate that is light and fresh, that also has saliva generating tannins. A mini tour de force designed for drinking right now, but has a sneaky ‘real wine’ power within. 13% alc. Drink till 2018.
