Head Wines

Head Wines

Winemaker Alex Head’s dream to make elegant Barossa wines began in 1999 while travelling through some of Europe’s greatest wine growing regions, along with his longheld fascination with the synergy of good wine, fine food and happy company at the table. Head Wines is all that and more.

Alex follows a traditional négociant model, an old practice where the winemaker does not grow their own grapes, instead working with a number of small growers. Around three-quarters of the grapes that end up in Head Wines’ bottles are sourced from a carefully chosen selection of these elevated Eden Valley sites. All of these vineyards are farmed sustainably using organic principles where possible; yields are controlled and grapes are hand-picked.

Not being tied to his own vineyards has allowed Alex to spend years understanding the strengths and weaknesses of a number of sites in pursuit of his individual style. Alex creates great Barossan wines that are memorably balanced whilst pursuing styles that are intentional and truly of place. This is sublime winemaking.

Oliver's Taranga

In 1839 William and Elizabeth Oliver travelled to South Australia from Scotland and eventually settled in 1841 on land at McLaren Vale. Whitehill and Taranga farms, the names given to the northern and southern sections of this land, are located 2 km north of McLaren Vale overlooking the township. Taranga is a corruption of the aboriginal word Tarangk, meaning ‘the middle' which was used by the Kaurna, a local aboriginal tribe. Sheep and cattle were raised and orchards and vineyards were planted immediately upon arrival and the family prospered.

Both properties are still run by fifth generation descendants of William and Elizabeth, with the Whitehill property utilized for cropping and grazing sheep and cattle and boasting a rejuvenated stone ‘Chaff Shed' which is used as a function centre and Taranga, which consists of 100 hectares of land, being planted to many different varieties of red and white wine grapes.

Te Mata Estate

Te Mata Estate

Te Mata Estate

Established in 1896, Te Mata Estate remains family owned, producing internationally recognized wines exclusively from its Hawke's Bay vineyards. The Estate's ownership varied frequently until John and Wendy Buck acquired it in 1978. John and Wendy instigated a twenty-year development program, which commenced with the restoration of the original winery building and the replanting of all of the original vineyards, as well as the acquisition of new vineyard sites.

The range of temperature and soil types, allied with the rainfall band between 650-850mm, create conditions to produce high quality wines of a classic range akin to those of coastal, central and northern France. Te Mata wines are similar in weight and balance but with unique lifted floral and fruit aromas.

Te Mata winery has been ranked 'Top Winery in New Zealand' evidenced by the consistent quality of the Coleraine and Awatea Cabernet Merlot wines, the Bull Nose Syrah and the Elston Chardonnay.

Tolpuddle Vineyard

Tolpuddle Vineyard

Tolpuddle Vineyard

Tolpuddle Vineyard was established in 1988 and it took its name from the Tolpuddle Martyrs: English convicts transported to Tasmania for forming an agricultural union. The leader of the Martyrs, George Loveless, served some of his sentence working on a property near Richmond, part of which is now Tolpuddle Vineyard.

The vineyard is planted with mature Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines, facing north-east, and sloping gently up from Back Tea Tree Road. The soil is light silica over sandstone and of moderate vigour, ensuring well-balanced vines producing grapes of great flavour and intensity.

In 2006 Tolpuddle Vineyard won the inaugural Tasmanian Vineyard of the Year award, reflecting the performance of this unique and distinguished site.

Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith MW purchased the vineyard in 2011 and are fully committed to seeing Tolpuddle Vineyard recognised as one of Australia's great single vineyards.

Two Hands Wines

Two Hands Wines

Two Hands Wines

Two Hands Wines was founded in early 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz.

Their intention was, and still is, to showcase the diversity of Australian Shiraz by highlighting regional characteristics and allowing the fruit to be the primary feature of the wines. Two Hands refers to the very personable approach taken with each parcel of grapes, no matter how big or small. The wines are carefully guided through the viticulture and winemaking process by Michael Twelftree.

From the outset, Two Hands set out to be unique. This approach is reflected in everything from the names of the wines through to innovative packaging and, not least, the wines themselves.

'Quality without compromise' is a core value that drives all Two Hands decisions so, not surprisingly, the wines have received international acclaim from respected wine critics, with Robert Parker proclaiming Two Hands as '...the finest negociant operation south of the equator...'

In November 2012, Two Hands was named in the Wine Spectator's annual Top 100 for the 10th consecutive year, an achievement that has never been equaled by any other winery the world over.

Willow Bridge Estate

Willow Bridge Estate

Willow Bridge Estate

Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principal s Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible.

The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family's confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.

From the release of their very first wines, their efforts were quickly rewarded with critical acclaim, wine show success and most importantly, glowing feedback from wine lovers.

Yabby Lake

Yabby Lake Vineyard was established by the Kirby family in 1998, in Tuerong, which is located in the northern end of the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. Over the past decade, the vineyard has built a reputation for chardonnay and pinot noir of great purity and character under its Single Vineyard and Single Block Release labels.

Led by winemaker Tom Carson, the Yabby Lake philosophy is to craft wines that speak of our site and the season in which they were grown. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing this expression.

The producer’s vision and dedication has led to some exciting accolades in recent years, including their history-making Block 1 Pinot Noir - which was the first pinot noir ever to win the revered Jimmy Watson Trophy, after 52 years of the award.

The Rosso di Montalcino and the Brunello di Montalcino are based on the parcels of Canalicchio and Montosoli, on the northern side of Montalcino, and which combined total 19 hectares planted. All wines are aged in medium-sized Slavonian oak botti. The soils of the Canalicchio parcels are largely clay with pebbles and a strong mineral content, resulting in wines of aromatic intensity, opulence and minerality. It is the extraordinary elegance, latent power, balance and silky tannins of the Casaccia parcel which sees it bottled separately.

The Montosoli soils are marl with very high mineral components, clay loam texture with higher levels of lime, with the pebbly texture increasing the pH. The resultant wines show great structure, minerality and sapidity.

Located at Mèze, near the “Bassin de Thau” in the Languedoc, Domaine Félines was purchased by the Jourdan family in 1983. Forty hectares of vines are planted on soils which are mostly chalk and clay. Rainfall is low, but the area benefits from refreshing moist breezes due to its proximity to the sea. The nearby bird reserve and Thau Lagoon were developed to protect the local environment. The Jourdan family undertook a replanting programme using improved varieties, and farm using sustainable practices.

The old-fashioned southern French white variety, Picpoul de Pinet, was first produced at the domaine in 1992. Picpoul de Pinet is captivating, yielding fresh, crisp, dry white wines with aromas of citrus, exotic fruits and florals with hints of fennel and minerality. The wonderful backbone of acidity and depth of fruit Picpoul de Pinet can generate is evidenced in Claude Jourdan’s newly released Cuvée Féline.

Château Romassan in Bandol was acquired by the Ott family in 1956 and following years of terracing and replanting, produces robust, harmonious and long lived wines. Cœur de Grain represents wine-making genius, and today the distinctive bottle evokes the memory of the elegant amphora of centuries past.

Today Domaine Oudin is still very much in family hands, run since 2007 by their daughter Nathalie Oudin with her sister Isabelle joining in 2012.

The oldest vineyards, the premier crus of Vaugiraut and Vaucoupin, and the Les Serres, a vineyard selection from plantings adjacent to Vaucoupin, are around 70 years of age. The AOC Chablis is sourced from 45 year old plantings on the left bank of the Serein, since back in the 1970s and 1980s, Chablis as a region was still growing, and new plantings were permitted. The Domaine remains small at 9.5 hectares, farmed organically on the poor, limestone-dominant soils, without herbicides or chemical fertilisers.

Yields are strictly controlled with short prunning and reduction of the number of buds throughout the growing season. Nathalie is proud to flaunt the fact that the winery is equipped with stainless steel tanks only, that is, there is not a single oak barrel. All of the wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts, and extended ageing sur lie contributes texture and complexity, and keeps the wines fresh and sprightly, and intensely minerally.

Kir-Yianni makes wine across two regions in the north of Greece – Amyndeon and Naoussa, with the aim of producing terroir driven wines that speak of place. In Naoussa, the 58 Ha vineyard is located on the east slopes of Mount Vermion, situated at an altitude of 250 to 350 m.a.s.l. on sandy, clay soils. Located at just 100 km from the Agean Sea, it enjoys a cool, Mediterranean climate. In contrast, Amyndeon is the coldest wine growing region in Greece. At an altitude of 750 m.a.s.l. the climate is continental, tempered only by the presence of four lakes which create a very special microclimate. The soils are poor and sandy, and unaffected by phylloxera. Specialising in the native Greek grape variety – xinomavro, the wines of both Naoussa and Amyndeon have a layered complexity of fruit and serious acidity, which give them a unique character and long ageing potential.

La Crema produces wines from top cool-climate appellations to include; Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast, Monterey and most recently Willamette. The unifying factors of all these sites are their cool, windy climates and marine-based soils.

La Crema's vineyards are all harvested by hand in the cooler morning hours. The winemaking techniques are primarily traditional with modern enhancements to ensure that the wines are true to both the variety and the terroir. Chardonnays are whole-cluster pressed and fermented and aged in French oak on the lees with bi-monthly battonage to add texture and complexity. The Pinot Noirs are cold soaked for five to eight days before fermentation in small, open-top fermenters and aged in a combination of new and used French oak barrels. As with the Chardonnay, La Crema's Pinot Noirs are pure, accurate and reflective of their origin.

Outstanding vineyard sources, limited yields and artisanal wine making produce wines that receive high acclaim.

First planted to grapes in the 1860s, this wild and isolate winegrowing region features panoramic views and some of the lowest yields in all of the Napa Valley. Despite being the largest AVA in Napa Valley, Mount Veeder produces less than 2% of all its wines.

The Mt. Brave vineyard is famous for its rugged terrain and steep slopes, where extreme conditions require that all work in the vineyard be done by hand. Thin, gravelly loam soils with rocks large and small force the vines to develop deep roots. High above the fog, the vineyard sits at between 425 and 550 metres, where nutrient poor, thin soils barely hold water, resulting in tiny berries with intense flavor. While Mount Veeder is cooler because of its elevation, it’s the first to see the early morning sun. This extended sun exposure helps ripen the tannins.

Poderi Luigi Einaudi

Poderi Luigi Einaudi

Poderi Luigi Einaudi

Founded by Luigi Einaudi, during his time as Governor of Banca d’Italia and President of Italy after the second world war, it is said he never missed a harvest! His son Roberto succeeded him, but it was Roberto’s daughter Paola, on her return from Milano to Dogliani at the end of the 1980s, who with tenacity, enthusiasm and significant investment, re-launched this historic brand and went about improving wine quality.

Today it is her son, fourth generation Matteo Sardagna, who is at the helm. Long sojourns in the Langhe as a child with his grandfather and mother left Matteo with a deeply-rooted passion for the family’s values and customs. Today the winery is equipped with unique cement egg-like fermenting tanks, and botti of varying sizes and age so that Matteo and his team can produce wines which reflect their terroir, and the traditional style of the region and the estate.

Poliziano

Poliziano

Poliziano

Dino Carletti entered the world of viticulture in 1961 to maintain a living contact with the place and culture of his origins. The name Poliziano pays homage to the 15th Century poet Angelo Ambrogini who hailed from Montepulciano and was knicknamed “Poliziano”.

Dino’s son Federico Carletti took over in 1980 and has since grown Poliziano from 22 to 240 hectares, of which 130 hectares are dedicated to the production of sangiovese or “prugnolo gentile’ as it is locally known, planted predominately on the southern flank of Montepulciano.

Today, the Poliziano wines evoke the historic tradition of the land, but at the same time speak eloquently to the modern world. Theirs is a developing narrative… they retain their original labels, but have matured and evolved over time, always with the objective of uncompromising quality and expression of terroir.

Reverie

Rêverie

Rêverie

Rêverie wines come from a land full of history. It is produced in the Southern French Languedoc-Roussillon, along the Mediterranean coastline. This region benefits from the Mediterranean climate, with the northern mountains of the Pyrenees embrace the vineyards of the Pays d’Oc like an amphitheatre. The coastline borders the region in the South and boasting views of beaches and vast expanses of vineyards with windswept soils. The landscape is made up of steep slopes, hilly peaks, vineyards, vegetation and the sea. The region’s humidity and cool temperatures are partnered with hot dry summers allowing the vineyards to produce perfect maturity in the grapes packed with fruity aromas.

Thanks to a heritage of over 2000 years of winemaking traditions and an integration of climates, reliefs and soils, this region is home to a diversity of extraordinary wines. It is the patchwork of wine growing areas in Pays d’Oc that creates an expression of these grape varieties that are unique. This allows us to produce a versatile range of wines reflective of the region.

Marie returned to Rully to join her brother, wine lover and wine broker, at the time "method traditionelle" was being introduced for sparkling wines. The wines immediately gained recognition, and her grandson Charles Roux Ambal, followed by his grandson and current President Eric Piffaut, have continued to build on Marie's philosophy of quality, and the combination of tradition and modernity which is the signature of Veuve Ambal. With over 200 hectares of vineyards across Burgundy, mainly planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Veuve Ambal remain leaders in the production of Cremant de Bourgogne today.

Vincent Paris

Vincent Paris is a native of Cornas and his first vintage was in 1997. He inherited most of his vineyards (some of which are 100+ years old) from his grandfather and purchased some from his uncle, legendary Cornas vigneron Robert Michel, on his retirement in 2006.

The biodynamically farmed vineyards are located in various parcels along the southeast facing Cornas slope. Vincent's wines exhibit power, yet possess a determined freshness and elegance to them. His Granit 30 and Granit 60 take their names from the slope and gradient of the vineyards and average vine age respectively. Vincent's famed Geynale parcel is comprised exclusively of old vines planted in 1910. Vincent Paris is without a doubt one of the rising stars of the Rhône Valley.
