2020 Head Red GSM
Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro
"Head Wines is the venture of Alex Head, who came into the wine industry in 1997 with a degree in biochemistry from Sydney University. Experience in fine wine stores, importers and an auction house was followed by vintage work at wineries he admired: Tyrrell’s,Torbreck, Laughing Jack and Cirillo Estate. The naming of the wines reflects his fascination with Côte-Rôtie in the Northern Rhône Valley. The two facing slopes in Côte-Rôtie are known as Côte Blonde and Côte Brune. Head’s Blonde comes from an east-facing slope in the Stone Well area, while The Brunette comes from a very low-yielding vineyard in the Moppa area. In each case, open fermentation (with whole bunches) and basket pressing precedes maturation in French oak." James Halliday
What The Critics Say
94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"Wonderfully fruited and elegantly complex with dark berry, game, tapenade and roasted nut characters on the nose, it's beautifully weighted and flavoursome. Silky and plush with excellent fruit intensity, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2028. $27.00. www.headwines.com.au. May 2021." Drink 2021 - 2028
92/100 The Wine Front, Gary Walsh
"GW: Black fruit, dried herb perfume, liquorice, cinnamon. Ripe and succulent, some chocolate in there, light tannin, pulls along with some more grip on the finish. Hearty and generous. Easy to get into. 40% Grenache, 35% Shiraz, 25% Mataro. Vine age between 20 and 80 years." Drink 2021 - 2026
96/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, James Halliday (2019 vintage)
"From 25-76yo vines, wild yeast-open fermented with 10% whole bunches, 14 days on skins, daily plunging and pumpovers, 500 dozen made. Beautifully and harmoniously structured and textured, clarity and purity its watchwords."
