NV LIGHTLY SPARKLING ALICANTE BOUSCHET
$35.00
- +

Vinden Wines is one of very few wineries in Australia to grow and produce this rare grape varietal - it is a teinturier, one of the few grapes with red flesh, resulting from a cross in the 1800’s between a Grenache and Petit Bouschet. Grown on Vinden Estate on red loamy clay, it truly reflects the characteristics of the grape varietal, a fruit-forward style with red berries on the palate.  This new release is bottled with a light spritz.

.

This year’s lightly sparkling Alicante Bouschet looks a little different - Angus selected a swing top champenoise glass, making it easy to pop and reseal - saving you manically searching through that one random cutlery drawer (we all have one) for your Champagne stopper. This year’s label was illustrated by Hunter Valley-born, botanical illustrator Adriana Picker. The elegant illustration shows the Alicante Bouschet during its flowering process.

2021 Vinden Headcase Rose

Nothing screams summer, quite like a smashable rosé.

Multiple ferments in stainless, barrels and concrete egg’s were blended together to create a delicious, dry, textural rosé. This guy is made from Cabernet, Mourvèdre, Shiraz, Chardonnay & Semillon. This is my favourite rosé I've ever made, with a huge influence from Bandol - for those of you who know me, I drink that stuff by the gallon. Sourced from Inglewood, Somerset, Vinden & Tawarri Vineyards across the Hunter Valley.

2021 Vinden Headcase Charmless Man

Named after the Blur Song, ‘Charmless Man’, this wine was an experimental batch for the 2021 vintage. This funky little blend of Shiraz, Cabernet & Alicante Bouschet is light, fun and delicious.  Enjoy it now or on a hot summers day serve it chilled with a straw. Cheers!

2021 Vinden Headcase Shiraz Nouveau

This wine was inspired by a trip to Beaujolais. This light, crisp, perfumed style of Shiraz was sourced from our Vinden Vineyard planted in 1995 over red clay soil and Tawarri Vineyard in the Upper Hunter. 10% whole bunch, 90% whole berry in open concrete fermenters, hand plunged, basket pressed and aged for 4 months in neutral French oak barrels. Enjoy it now or on a hot summers day serve it chilled with a straw. Cheers!

2021 Somerset Vinden Wines Verdelho

This Verdelho was sourced from our Somerset Vineyard. The block was planted by the Howard family in 1987, over fine sandy clay loam soil. This is not your “traditional” Hunter Verdelho- the fruit was picked early to retain its beautiful natural acidity and freshness. A reinvigorated approach to this classic varietal, which is highly drinkable with anything spicy!
