About The Pack

Alex Head's 'entry-level' reds offer some of the best value in the Barossa. 

Old vine fruit made by one of the region's best modern winemakers priced around $25 a bottle?

This is no-brainer territory for any red wine drinker.

2016 Head Nouveau

This is one of the best 'BBQ reds' you are going to find from the Barossa Valley. It's a wine that winemaker Alex Head wants to change people's ideas about what the Barossa is all about.

The 2016 combines Pinot Noir, Montepulciano and Touriga into a moreish, modern Australian red ready for the guzzling. It's seen barely a whisper of oak, relying on the fruit freshness from a high elevation to take the fore.

It's bright and loves a chill in the fridge - a different beast to last year but delicious little bargain none-the-less.

2017 Head Red GSM

Made by the formidable Alex Head from a barrel declssification of some of his best wines, the Grenache fruit comes from an assortment of vineyards planted in the Barossa as far back as 1942.

The portion of Mourvedre is from Seppeltsfield and the Shiraz from one of his favourite vineyards in Krondorf.

In this compact, delightful little wine you reap the benefits of decades worth of viticulture and a mastercraftsman winemaker.

For $25, there are few wines in the Barossa that can hold a candle to this little number. A brilliant value and amazingly versitile modern Australian Red wine.

2016 Head Red Shiraz

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.

According to Alex, the 2016s are his best release in years.  As Gary Walsh noted in his 92 point review, this release was, "More good juicy and affordable Shiraz from Heady."  For easy-drinking but serious Barossa Shiraz, it's hard to go past this release.
