For The Cellar

Head Wines Head Red Old Vine Grenache Shiraz Mataro, Barossa Valley 2012 $26

Another winning entry-level blend from young Barossa winemaker Alex Head. Deeply coloured, shyly offering aromas of earth, spices, oak and dark-fruits. A big, solid, dense wine with licorice overtones, power and grip. It’ll also cellar well. Best 2015 to 2027. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 92/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: beef or lamb casserole
