The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Lifting the price barrier to $25 had the desired effect, although the overall unequal split between red and white wines still meant that competition was fierce in each of the red wine sections. Shiraz stalks wines both under and over $25, but I somehow come up with a wider varietal representation than usual, and consequentially throw the geographic net far and wide. The run of good vintages has also helped.

Fresh and juicy… smooth and rich. Alex Head is making some of the most exciting wines coming out of the Barossa.
'The back label puts it succinctly: this is the best-value blend of Barossa Valley shiraz I can make each year…super-fragrant…the flavours circling red and black fruits, multi-spices, a touch of black licorice, and the tannins judged to perfection.'
