2017 Blockhead Shiraz Grenache
The 2017 vintage commenced about four weeks later than the previous five, and was coined by many as the ‘old normal’, with the first Shiraz ready on the 4th of March. Mild temperatures through February provided a steady ramp-up in crushing. The 2017 vintage was preceded by a favourable season in the Barossa that allowed all vineyards to produce both strong yields and high quality, and has delivered some absolute standout wines from pedigree vineyards.
The grapes for Blockhead Shiraz Grenache were sourced from family owned vineyards. The Shiraz coming from the central and northern Barossa Valley, while the vibrant Grenache was selected from a vineyard on the South western edge of the Barossa Valley.
Voluptuous, juicy red berry, dark chocolate and savoury spice flavours with soft flowing tannins, smooth and balanced. The Blockhead range is characterised by its drinkability and its soft, lush and generous palate.

"This wine, in hedonistic terms, is the best of the Blockhead series, simply because it has so much to offer. Great balance, and a great life ahead."
