Batches of wine were carefully selected from Shiraz blocks within the vineyard and complemented with parcels from the north-western Barossa to create a wine that displays the treasured characteristics the property naturally produces: saturated colour, fruit intensity and soft, savoury tannins.
A lifted wine showing aromatics of dark cherry, black currant, raspberry, satsuma plum and black olives. The palate shows traditional Hentley Farm characters with soft succulent tannins that are supported by dark fruits and balanced acidity. Notes of cherry and liquorice add complexity while the balance of fruit intensity and oak through the back provide great length.
