“96 points. There's a lot happening here, all of it good. 80% is sourced from the Eden Valley, 20% the Barossa Valley, co-fermented on skins for 14 days, matured in French oak (10% new), the barrel size ranging from 225l to 2250l. There's a poultice of red and black fruits and ribbons of fine, ripe tannins. You can't deny a wine like this.” James Halliday

Alex Head’s dream to make elegant Barossa wines began while travelling through some of Europe’s greatest wine growing regions, along with his long-held fascination with the synergy of good wine, fine food and happy company at the table.

Head Wines was started in 2006 by Alex Head. It focuses on single site Rhone varietals from the Barossa and Eden Valleys in South Australia. Alex creates great Barossan wines that are memorably balanced whilst pursuing styles that are intentional and truly of place.

A rich full flavoured Shiraz with a good mix of red and black berries, dark plums, pepper and spice, toasty balanced oak, firm tannins and exceptional length.

Impenetrable inky black colour with a deep bright dark red black hue. Elevated freshly crushed blackberry, liquorice and plum aromas emerge followed by vanillin confectionary, toasty cedar and pepper.

Rich and full the palate is both succulent and inky in its feel with blackberry, liquorice and plum in the drivers seat. Toasty vanillin cedar, earth and spicy pepper characters make an appearance on the back half. This is a wine of great elegance and exceptional length.
