Head Red Shiraz 2015
Alex Head makes wines from grapes harvested from vineyards farmed using organic principles in the Barossa and Eden Valleys in South Australia.
This Shiraz is made with fruit sourced from several different sites. The fruit is matured for one year in a mix of new and old oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Minimum sulphur is used during all stages.
The wine is deep red to purple in colour. It's medium to full-bodied and smells of spice, plums, black cherry and pepper. It's a dense wine, with chewy tannins and a long finish.
A good match with strong cheddar cheese, roast beef or vegetable lasagne.
