The last 2 vintages have won 95 points from James Halliday. It may be Shiraz that tops to Hentley list with the mighty Clos Otto but for many Hentley Farm’s Cabernet’s are real stars. Purity of varietal expression like you will have rarely come across.
A very lifted and pretty nose with herbaceous notes of mint, bell pepper and tomato leaf leading the nose while supported by primary fruit characters of plum and sweet cherry. The flavour profile mirrors the nose but also includes dark chocolate and graphite. Grainy tannins provide the savoury edge and structure that supports and provides length to the otherwise fruit driven palate.
