6 x 750ml
88/8/3/2% shiraz/merlot/grenache/viognier, fruit 80/20% Eden Valley/Barossa Valley; matured for 19 months on fine lees with 5% new French oak and 80% ex-chardonnay barriques. The sage-flecked elegance of Eden Valley fruit comes through in this wine, while retaining fruit purity and impeccable balance and flow. Layered with spice, hints of violets, and fine powdery tannin, finishing long for a wine at this price. Dave Brookes Published 02 August 2023 Read more

Tasting Notes

AROMA: It has some of the aromatic prettiness of 2018. PALATE: There’s richness and grand texture in the mid palate.

Winemakers Note

A rather large jigsaw puzzle of 10 very unique Barossa vineyards are used for HEAD RED Shiraz. They mostly come from the higher altitude, rocky, cooler sites of the Eden Valley. In the winery there is very little ‘fancy’ winemaking -ultimately allowing the vintage and Barossa character to show clearly.
