Head Wines

HEAD Wines was started in 2006 by Alex Head. It focuses on single site Rhone varietals from the Barossa and Eden Valleys in South Australia. The ‘House Style’ is one of elegance, freshness, balance and purity of fruit attained by a combination of low yields, early picking, slow-winemaking and careful, gentle attention during maturation. All vineyards are farmed sustainably using organic principles, yields are low/controlled, grapes are hand-picked, ferments use indigenous yeasts with some retention of stems and maturation is in Burgundian, larger format barrels. Minimal sulphur is used during the whole wine-making process and bottling is without fining or filtration.
