About The Wine
Cabernet Shiraz blends have not been the flavour of the month, the year, or even the past decade, but they are the backbone of the traditional Australian dry red.
Alex Head has gone into his Tardis and come up with a homely wine, at a crazy good price, full of rich dark fruit, baked earth characters, with a dense chunky mouthfeel and satisfying savoury rustic finish.
What is old is new again.
About Head Wines
Alex Head has had what you might call a meteoric rise through the Australian wine industry. In his short career as a producer he has been heralded as one of the best Young Gun Winemakers, not only in the Barossa but the whole country.
With no formal training as a winemaker, the purity and balance inherent in the wines are amazing.
Alex has a passion for the old vineyards that populate the Barossa. With a keen eye for a good site, Alex has put together a formidable portfolio of vineyards which produce simply outstanding renditions of Shiraz and Grenache year-in, year-out.
These are some of the most exciting wines in the Barossa.
