About

The Contrarian Shiraz is a chance for Alex Head to spread his wings and explore his home region.

“I have a particular fondness and affinity for this wine and what it represents moving forward in the Barossa. It fulfills my desire to push wine-making boundaries and explore the unique Terroirs of the Barossa (A single vineyard wine but from a different site each year).” - Alex Head

The 2015 is from a single site in Krondorf. It’s one of the best releases of this wine to date. Offering excellent value for both the intermediate and serious collector, The Contrarian can be enjoyed now or in a decade plus.

Gary Walsh descibed it as a, “Savoury and lithe expression of Barossa Shiraz, and very nicely done too.” in his 94 point review. Top buying here for any Barossa Shiraz fan.

What It Tastes Like

“Has perfume and spice laid on thick, and also this kind of ferrous thing going on that’s quite intriguing. Bramble fruit, grilled meat, very subtle cinnamon oak, medium bodied, lively and slightly sappy, fine emery tannin, with plenty of spice on a long cool finish. Savoury and lithe expression of Barossa Shiraz, and very nicely done too.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
