"50% grenache, 30% mataro and 20% shiraz 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." James Halliday 96/100, Aug 2020

This is the second style of wine to be produced under the ‘HEAD RED’ range and
like the ‘HEAD RED’ Shiraz is essentially a barrel de-classification. Always picked
on the cusp of ripeness with some whole-bunches retained for the fermentation which
is more of an infusion than an extraction. The fruit here is sourced from 5 different Grenache vineyards across the Barossa and Eden Valleys all aged between 60 & 155 years old. Each varietal component was fermented separately, resulting in more fruit definition, purity and accessibility. Bottled unfined and unfiltered under stelvin capsule.
