Head Red 2021

Cabernet Sauvignon

I’ve been banging away at Cabernet for a good 10 years now and never felt the desire to bottle one. It can be a wonderful blending tool in the Barossa. As time passes and my ‘Vineyard Monopoly’ game gets better, I had to hand in my opus. Of course, if you know me, you’ll know there would be an old-world twist to my wine and well, here you have a great blend of the best of the richness of Barossa Cab and Bordeaux’s arrogance and class. Alex Head 95Pts Halliday Wine Companion - Top 100 Wines of 2023

Product Details

“2021 Cabernet Sauvignon hails from one of the great Barossan years. Loaded with cassis leaf and warm blue & blackcurrant fruit leading into a narrow band of black & plummy fruit on the palate. The tannins are a real hoot – so fine and chocolatey. Should pair well with Steak Frites and Bordelaise sauce. I am in heaven." Alex Head

Tasting Notes

“Elegance is the feature of all the Head Red wines, balance ditto. Drilling down further, Head’s handling of tannin is masterful – as here, at 13.5% alcohol. That’s meant to be impossible, but clearly it’s not. Blackcurrant/Cassis floods the mouth, and other fruits (plum) join in. Drink to 2036.”
