2020 Vinden Headcase Shiraz Nouveau
Notes from Angus Vinden - he makes the wine.
This wine was inspired by a trip to Beaujolais. This light, crisp, perfumed style of Shiraz was sourced from the Howard family Somerset Vineyard where I once worked; I know this vineyard almost as well as my own. The 4 blocks were planted in 1965, 1966, 1968 & 1970 on red volcanic clay soils, over a limestone hillside in Pokolbin. 100% whole berry in open concrete fermenters, hand plunged, basket pressed and aged for 4 months in neutral French oak barrels. Enjoy it now or on a hot summers day serve it chilled with a straw. Cheers!
