Head Wines Contrarian Shiraz 2017

92 POINTS - WINE FRONT! 
 

"Three granite based vineyards in the Eden Valley. 40% whole bunch. Cement ferment. Raised in a four year old foudre.

Blackberry, liquorice, spice, some mint and flowers. Medium-bodied, meaty, bloody, plenty of scrub herb, blackcurrant, firm mineral/ironstone tannin – like the tannin here – dry and firm finish. An interesting and very savoury expression of Barossa Shiraz."Gary Walsh, Wine Front

 

"100% shiraz from 20-35yo vines. 25% whole bunches. 250 dozen. Game, leather and plum flavours lend this wine plenty of character and just a little curiosity. It's both a dry and drying style with earth, clove and campfire notes making up a complex picture." - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion
