About

The Head Red Shiraz is considered the trailer or preview to each vintage of the Head premium single vineyard Shiraz'. 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 and often it acts as a harbinger for the quality of the vintage. By the looks of this wine, the '15 Head releases are going to be sensational. As Gary Walsh noted this release shows, "Unusual sophistication at this price point for a Barossa Shiraz." in his 92 point review and for delicious, easy drinking but serious Barossa Shiraz, it's hard to go past this release.

What it Tastes Like

"Unusual sophistication at this price point for a Barossa Shiraz. It’s not an ooze monster, not at all. It’s fine and spicy, almost bony in structure with firm grainy tannin, blueberry and floral/apricot perfume, pan juices and crisp cut of acidity. Finish is dry, meaty and spicy, with a vapour trail of sweet blue fruit. Likely better again with another year in bottle." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
