The Brunette 2021


Head Wines now works with a diverse range of up to 20 different shiraz vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valleys. To be considered part of ‘The Brunette’ a vineyard must perform amongst the few top vineyards each year and represent the ‘dark-side’ of Shiraz in the Barossa. In the vineyard, we give every opportunity for the fruit to provide us with the tannins and concentration to make a structured and long-lived traditional Barossa Shiraz. In the 2021 vintage, the base shiraz comes from a vineyard planted circa 1965, in the Flaxman Valley at 480m altitude. The vineyard has a perfect easterly aspect and gradient to catch the morning sun and is shaded from the late heat of the day. The soils are lean, with clays, mixed ironstone and some scattered quartz, producing optimum conditions for dark, savoury fruits and fine, structured tannins.

Tasting Notes

“Deep magenta with aromas of bright, ripe plum and blackberry fruits cut with exotic spices, purple flowers, ironstone, liquorice, graphite and earth. Textural and resonant with a dark fruit flow, the gentle tug of granitic tannins framed by bright acidity and a long, supple finish. Now - 2035” 95 Pts
