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.
