The Vinden Headcase Charmless Man 2021
The Vinden Headcase Charmless Man is named after the Blur Song. An experimental batch made with a funky blend of Shiraz, Cabernet and Alicante Bouschet. Light, fun and delicious. Pomegranate, cherry and strawberry fruit flavours come out to play centre stage, whilst hints of dried orange peel, nutmeg and pepper spice weave along the edges.
If you're looking for a juicy little red that works well with a little chill, the Charmless Man might be your guy.
The fruit comes from Somerset, Vinden and Tawarri Vineyards across the Hunter Valley.
After hand-picking the fruit, whole bunches were subsequently foot-stomped. The Alicante Bouschet was fermented in large open concrete ferments. The wine was settled in tank before èlevage in seasoned French oak Hogsheads.
