Head Red 2020

GSM

This is the second style of wine to be produced under the ‘HEAD RED’ range and like the ‘HEAD RED’ Shiraz is essentially a barrel de-classification. Always picked on the cusp of ripeness with some whole-bunches retained for the fermentation which is more of an infusion than an extraction. The fruit here is sourced from 5 different Grenache vineyards across the Barossa & Eden Valleys all aged between 60 & 155 years old. Each varietal component was fermented separately, resulting in more fruit definition, purity and accessibility. Bottled unfined and unfiltered under Stelvin capsule.

Tasting Notes

For the second year in a row Grenache yields were the lowest I have encountered.  As well, Grenache realised prolific alcohol and obviously in seeking a balanced GSM the blend is as close to equal parts of Grenache, Shiraz & Mataro as you could get.  Here we see a wine with darker fruits at the core and more structural tannin, savouriness and dried herb spices.  There’s less of the red fruits, texture and sweetness you’d see in a normal year. Perhaps more Provence than Southern Rhone. Vive la difference!
