Head Red Nouveau Touriga Nacional & Montepulciano 2014
Alex Head makes wines from grapes harvested from vineyards farmed using organic principles in the Barossa and Eden Valleys in South Australia.
Nouveau is an unoaked blend of the Portuguese grape, Touriga Nacional, and the Italian grape, Montepulciano.
The wine smells of violets, earth, spiced cherries and liquorice. It's a lighter red with fresh, vibrant, juicy, tonic-like tannins. As a light wine it works well chilled on a warmer day. Made to be had with tapas or as part of a long lunch on a Sunday afternoon.
