Head Red Shiraz 2020
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.
The 2020 was produced from the second drought year in a row, however it’s a wonderful year for traditional style Shiraz in the Barossa. Big fruit and richness in the mid palate, with some of the aromatic prettiness of 2018. We tried pushing a little whole-bunch fermentation into some of the Eden Valley components and even 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to hold freshness in the wine.
This is a chance for me to play with the old adage, ‘The whole is greater than the sum of its parts’. Certainly, the best value, most traditional style and most popular wine of the portfolio. - Alex Head, Winemaker
