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. He actually follows an old 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.

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. 

Tasting Note:
The Head Red Shiraz is considered the trailer or preview to each vintage of the Head premium single-vineyard Shirazes. This is made from the barrels that barely missed the cut on the SV Shiraz; The Blonde; The Brunette and The Contrarian. Made with all the love and care that go into his top-flight releases, Alex Head releases this as a younger wine as something to enjoy whilst waiting for his premium releases to mature.

It's plush, full-bodied yet built for early drinking in the best possible way. For easy-drinking but serious Barossa Shiraz, it's hard to go past this release.

This is a Dry, Full bodied wine with High acidity and High tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium finish.
