This is the second style of wine to be produced under the ‘HEAD RED’ range and like the ‘HEAD RED’ Shiraz is essentially a barrel de-classification. Always picked on the cusp of ripeness with some whole-bunches retained for the fermentation which is more of an infusion than an extraction. Grenache is sourced from Barossa 'Old Vine' and 'Survivor Vine' vineyards in: Light Pass (1968), Greenock (1962), Williamstown (1968) and Krondorf (1942). The Mourvedre component comes from Seppeltsfield and the Shiraz from Krondorf. Matured for one year in old 500L puncheons. Bottled without filtration or fining. For immediate drinking and can be chilled lightly.
