Head Red GSM 2021
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.
2021 HEAD RED GSM hails from one of the great Barossan years. Plenty of upfront red fruits and earthen spice on the nose. Cuddly, intense layers of crunchy red to blue fruits. Long, juicy, fresh and persistent tannins should pair well with Mediterranean dishes but it’s just too easy to drink on its own! The best GSM in years. - Alex Head, Winemaker
