2020 Head Wines Head Red Shiraz Barossa Valley – Alex Head’s wines are powerfully individual, intriguing, hard to categorise, these are drawn from signature vineyards and show Alex Head at his most uncompromising; hands-on, bold and risk-taking. Most of all though, they are pure expressions of their Barossa and Eden Valley home.
Head Red is a barrel cull from up to 15 Barossa vineyards predominantly coming from the higher altitude/cooler sites of Eden Valley. It allows a snapshot of the vintage quality to come and keeps the quality of the single vineyard wines as high as possible. The wine always receives 12 months barrel maturation in 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 Alex 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 Head Wines portfolio.
