About The Pack

Alex Head is one of the Barossa's brightest young stars. He is, what you might call, a natural talent. With no formal winemaking training, the precision and skill with which he crafts his wines is quite incredible.

His Shiraz have probably garnered the most praise. His exploration of the small parishes in the Barossa resulting in thrilling wines over the last decade. 

His 2016s are outstanding. This is the perfect way to try them.

2016 Head The Contrarian Shiraz

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

The 2016 is from a single site in Greenock. 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 described it as a, "Dare I say it, the Rhône expression of Shiraz from Heady?" in his 93+ point review. Top buying here for any Barossa Shiraz fan.

2016 Head The Brunette Shiraz

Arguably, the two wines in his portfolio that have gained him the most notoriety would be twin Shiraz: The Blonde and The Brunette.

This is one of the benchmarks for the next generation of Barossa Shiraz. This single vineyard in Moppa producing one of the future icon wines of the region. Collectors, get on board.

The 2016 is a blistering release of Brunette, with 95 points from Gary Walsh and the potential to be something truly wonderful in 10-20 years time.

2016 Head The Blonde Shiraz

The Blonde has become something of a Barossa Valley staple for those seeking the next wave of premium Barossa Shiraz for their cellar.

The Blonde is the more seductive and elegant of the Head Shiraz as a younger wine, but she's no slouch in the cellar.  The 2016 is a sensational release, the season naturally producing powerful, luscious wines in general for the region - characteristics that work well in The Blonde.

Gary Walsh awarded this 95 points suggesting that this release was "Succulent, balanced, and very long... Delightful". A classic release of this much loved Shiraz from Alex.
