"There's a lot happening here, all of it good. 80% is sourced from the Eden Valley, 20% the Barossa Valley, co-fermented on skins for 14 days, matured in French oak (10% new), the barrel size ranging from 225l to 2250l. There's a poultice of red and black fruits and ribbons of fine, ripe tannins. You can't deny a wine like this." James Halliday Wine Companion Aug 2020, 96/100

"Best of the Best by Variety 2021"

HEAD RED is a barrel cull from Barossa vineyards including 'The Blonde', 'The
Brunette' and ‘The Contrarian’ single vineyard wines. It allows a pre-view of the
vintage quality to come and keeps the quality of the Single vineyard wines as high as
possible. The wine always receives 12 months barrel age in a new French foudre
(2250L) with predominantly older French hogsheads for the balance, allowing the
vintage and terroir to show clearly. It’s also a chance for me to play with the old
adage, ;The whole is greater than the sum of its part. Certainly the best value and
most traditional wine style of the portfolio. Bottled unfined and unfiltered under
stelvin capsule.
