'Head Red' is a barrel cull from Barossa vineyards including 'The Blonde' & 'The Brunette' single vineyard wines. It allows a pre-view of the vintage quality to come and keeps the quality of The Blonde and The Brunette wines as high as possible. The wine always receives 12 months barrel age in predominantly older French Hogsheads allowing the vintage and terroir to show clearly. It’s also a chance for him to play with the old adage, 'The whole is greater than the sum of its parts'.
Deep crimson-purple. The nose shows raspberry, mulberry, musk and ripe black plums. The palate has big upfront fruit on entry with sweet, fruit derived tannins and licorice in the middle. Fresh dark cherries, damson plums and soft ovaltiney tannins help finish the wine. Drink for 8 years.
$25.00 in any mixed six $22.00 by the straight dozen.
