Head Wines 'The Brunette' Shiraz 2021


In the 2021 vintage, the base shiraz comes from a vineyard planted circa 1965, in the Flaxman Valley at 480m altitude. The vineyard has a perfect easterly aspect and gradient to catch the morning sun and is shaded from the late heat of the day. The soils are lean, with clays, mixed ironstone and some scattered quartz, producing optimum conditions for dark, savoury fruits and fine, structured tannins.

"Flaxman Valley, planted around 1965, sitting at 450 metres above sea level. Heady seems to be seeking higher altitudes for his wines in recent years. Blackberry, liquorice, orange peel, dark spices. It’s dark fruited, but with a chocolate orange zestiness, lively acid crunch, almost a chamomile and dried herb mouth-perfume, raw almond, some dry nutty chew to tannin, with a dark, spicy and zesty XMAS cake (or panforte) finish of good length." 93pts | Gary Walshe | WineFront
