Alex Head was my guest on Episode 68 of The Vincast wine podcast (link below), and so I was thrilled when my girlfriend brought home a bottle of his 2014 Nouveau and decided to open it up and share my impressions.

Alex Head discovered a love and fascination of wine whilst studying sciences at Sydney University. After travelling on a gastronomic journey across Europe he was hooked. Many years were spent in iconic Sydney wine retail, before a tenure at Langton’s. This experience led a sea-change to the Barossa where he eventually established Head Wines. In the past almost ten years he was forged a reputation for producing some of the most exciting wines in the region, particularly those from Rhone Valley varieties.
