    Winemaker Alex Head’s dream to make elegant Barossa wines began in 1999 while travelling through some of Europe’s greatest wine growing regions, along with his longheld fascination with the synergy of good wine, fine food and happy company at the table. Head Wines is all that and more. Alex follows a traditional négociant model, an old practice where the winemaker does not grow their own grapes, instead working with a number of small growers. Around three-quarters of the grapes that end up in Head Wines’ bottles are sourced from a carefully chosen selection of these elevated Eden Valley sites. All of these vineyards are farmed sustainably using organic principles where possible; yields are controlled and grapes are hand-picked.

    Deep, rich purple/red colour, with a smoky-charcuterie, delicatessen-type bouquet which leads into a very full-bodied, powerful palate that boasts concentrated flavour and abundant tannins that coat the entire mouth. There's excellent line and length and the tannins promise a long and bright future. Dark plums, blackberry, a subtle lick of mixed spices. So concentrated it's almost an essence. Very long carry. Long-term. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 14 February, 2021, 95 Points
