Head Red GSM 2012 (Barossa, SA)
14.5%, Screwcap, $25
I loved the 2012 Head Red Shiraz. Ripping value. This GSM is certainly in the zone, if not quite the brilliance of the Shiraz.
Ultimately a pretty tasty sort of a number but you just want a more guts to really do homage to that nose. Still, properly authentic GSM.
Score: 17/20, 90/100
Would I buy it? Hmm. I’d like to see how this evolved as it is still super young. Might be worth sticking a bottle away for a year? Tough competition in 2012 though as there are so many Barossan leading lights.
