Head The Contrarian shiraz

“Red and purple hues. Aromas of blue fruits,
violets, stem, spice and chalk. Liquid red
cherries & more blue fruits fill the palate with
some tar and more smoky tea leaf aromas.
Very little oak character and some chewy, lively
tannins to finish. Lovely acidity keeps the wine
focused and intent on food. A candidate for
Peking Duck or smoked seafood/meats.
Decant for at least 1 hour. Drink 2019-2025.”

The Contrarian is our expression of European style Barossa Shiraz. We source fruit from the granite-based vineyards of the Eden Valley, Barossa. Considerably more whole-bunches are used in the fermentation and maceration. This wine reflects our curious and creative desire to explore the limits of terroir and winemaking styles within the Barossa.
