HEAD RED SHIRAZ 2018

Barossa Valley - S.A.
750mL

Notes

Fruit is sourced from up to 10 Barossa vineyards predominantly coming from the higher altitude, cooler sites of Eden Valley. The wine allows a preview, or snapshot, of the vintage quality to come. The wine always receives 12 months barrel maturation in a French oaks of differing sizes (228L, 300L, 500L, 600L, 2250L), allowing the vintage and Barossa character to show clearly. It’s also 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. ‘Head Red’ wines are produced with balance and drinkability in mind without sacrificing true Barossan character. Bottled unfined under Stelvin capsule. Alex Head

“High perfume, blueberry coulis, blackberry, spice and sage, ironstone. Medium-bodied, succulent, intense fruit of perfume and weight, dark chocolate tannin, savoury elements, very long fresh finish. Super vintage. Puppy-like in enthusiasm as at now. Almost 94 points, though that’s kind of arbitrary.” 96 Points - James Halliday
